Swim and Slide With Your Kids at Aquatic Centers in the Atlanta Area

Atlanta Aquatic Centers

Looking for fun activities to keep your kids cool during the summer? Trying to find a more affordable option than one of Atlanta's waterparks? Several counties in the Atlanta area have community aquatic centers where you can swim, play, and take lessons.

Some of these aquatic centers are even open during the winter when the pool seems like a distant memory, though not all of the features may be available. Be sure to check the open hours and times whenever you go, since they change with the seasons.
