The outdoor pool season started early this year! Highlands Park Aquatic Center (HPAC) is now open 
with special hours and will remain open until September 3. Passes are available for purchase at the Westerville Community Center or HPAC. Please note that due to construction on the indoor pool, all current pass holders with the Westerville Community Center receive complimentary access to HPAC throughout the summer.

Find the complete pool schedule and hours here.


The hit of the summer is in Westerville at Highlands Park Aquatic Center (HPAC). Designed with a natural, organic-feeling environment for relaxing fun in the sun, the Aquatic Center features a speed and body slide tower, a zero-entry toddler pool with a simulated-rock slide, a spray playground, lazy river and eight-lane, 25-meter pool with diving well. There‚Äôs enough here to keep a family of any age busy for an entire day or the whole summer. 

Closure Policy
To ensure the safety and security of everyone, all participants in the Monday-Saturday swim lessons, adult swim and toddler swim are asked to gather their belongings and exit the facility before the facility reopens for regular hours of operation. Any participant that paid a daily admission in the morning session who wishes to return, may re-enter through the pass holder line.
Family Guest Pass
In an effort to make season passes affordable for families, each household can also purchase up to two additional Family Guest Passes. Use them for any two guests once per day throughout the season.
