The Aquatic Center is opening for the first time since 2019, after the 2020 season was canceled due to COVID-19.

“We are thrilled to celebrate the return of summer and the reopening of the SC Johnson Community Aquatic Center. We invite residents and families to enjoy the center’s sparkling pools, slides and exciting water elements, or relax poolside and enjoy treats from the concession stand,” Racine County and Racine Family YMCA officials said.

Season passes are on sale now and can be purchased at the Sealed Air Branch welcome desk, 8501 Campus Drive, Mount Pleasant.
