ABOUT THE AQUATIC CENTER AT MYLAN PARK
A Letter from the Director:
What a year. The pandemic has had an effect on all of us this past year and our life may be forever changed. One thing that hasn’t changed but perhaps has grown stronger than ever is our need to recreate, socialize, stay healthy, and active. The Aquatic Center at Mylan Park is an amazing community amenity owned by Mylan Park Properties and operated with support from Mylan Park Foundation, West Virginia University, WVU Athletics as well as other community partners. The facility has three large pools, a full-size track, a fitness center and outdoor Splash Pad.
One side of the facility houses fully certified Olympic-sized Competition swimming and diving pools which are the new home of the WVU Swimming and Diving team and other local swim and dive teams and the Monongalia High School swim teams. The other side of the facility is home to the Huntington Community Pool, which is a perfect place to explore the water safely, learn to swim and dive, work out, have fun and make family memories.
All of our programs are instructed by dedicated and trained staff and provide the foundation for future aquatic adventures. Keep checking back for expanding aquatic options including, kayaking, scuba diving, water polo, synchronized swimming, community events and more.
THE HUNTINGTON COMMUNITY POOL & SPLASHPAD
Perfect for family fun and individual use, the Community Pool located adjacent to the Outdoor Splash Pad offers six 25 yard lap lanes, zero-depth entry, a variety of water play features, and four water slides accommodating all ages.
The Outdoor Splash Pad is located adjacent to the Huntington© Community Pool. Come cool off with features such as dumping buckets and troughs, sprayers, geysers, sprinklers, and more on top of a non-slip concrete surface. Umbrellas are available for getting out of the sun, all set with a backdrop of beautiful rolling hills of Morgantown, West Virginia.
