Russell Sims Aquatic Center

This year feels like we received more rain than ever and now the weather can’t seem to make up its mind! The temperatures look like they are going to start climbing this week and we hope folks are ready to go for a swim at The Russell Sims Aquatic Center when it opens!

Opening day is scheduled for Friday, May 24th, 2019 weather permitting. Remember that 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. The new entrance area allows for four lines of patrons during our busier hours.


In addition, the Preston Miller Park has recently had a ribbon cutting for the new FREE outdoor fitness area located behind the pool and sand volleyball courts.

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 https://www.bgky.org/bgpr/aquatics/pricing.
