No matter the weather outside, it’s always swimsuit weather at the Watering Hole at the Westerville Community Center. Kids and adults both have a blast in the Leisure Pool, Competition Pool and Whirlpool. In the Leisure Pool alone there’s a fun body slide, tube slide, fountains, shallow play area, water playground, lazy river and both lap lanes, and an open area for swimming.
Our Competition Pool is a modern eight-lane, 25-yard lap/competitive pool with two diving boards where residents can be found swimming laps or practicing dives.
The Watering Hole is part of the Aquatics Division of Westerville Parks and Recreation, whose mission it is to enhance the lives of the people of Westerville with high quality, diverse aquatic facilities, programs and services. Come for a swim and see what a great job they’re doing.
