This year feels like we went straight from winter to summer. The warm temperatures have folks ready to go for a swim and it won’t be long until The Russell Sims Aquatic Center is open!

Opening day is scheduled for Friday, May 25th, 2018 weather permitting and folks will notice some big changes when they visit us this year. Our former entrance has been closed off to make room for more restrooms and showers, a larger changing area and the addition of two family changing rooms. A new entrance area has been constructed and will allow for four lines of patrons during our busier hours. In addition, the pool bottom was refinished and painted, and all of our features and handrails have also been repainted.


As always, children of all ages will enjoy the zero depth entry, palm trees, water buckets, lemon drops, splash playground, and beautiful beach area. In addition, Russell Sims boasts a 50 meter pool, two awesome water slides, and two diving boards where you can amaze the crowd.

Don’t forget to make it a point to come hungry. We have a full line of concessions that is sure to have what you are craving. The Russell Sims Aquatic Center is staffed with American Red Cross certified lifeguards and we make customer service our #1 priority!

General admission is $8 for adults (16+ years), $5 for youth 6 to 15 years, $4 for children ages 3 to 5 and babies under 2 are only $2. Half price admission begins after 4 p.m.! Individual season passes can be purchased for $100 and family passes for up to four members can be purchased for $200! See all pricing details at http://www2.bgky.org/bgpr/aquatics/rates.php.
