The North County Aquatic Center is a family oriented public pool. The pool is heated and open year round. We feature an activity pool, a competition pool, with a diving well and changing facilities. Our activity pool is zero depth for easy entry for all ages. The activity pool has slides, water cannons, bubblers, a water tree and a huge water play structure. The competition pool has almost 1 million gallons of water. We have up to 24 lanes for lap swimming at 25 yards. Our diving well has one meter and three meter diving boards.
Gifford Aquatics Center features a large 100� x 75� pool and a �Sprayground� for kids. The pool is �zero� entry, meaning you can walk in gradually from one end (just like an ocean beach only no waves or rip tides!). This makes it easy to introduce water to the kids, teach swimming, and accommodate those in wheelchairs, which can roll right into the water! The 178,000-gallon pool has a capacity for 149 swimmers.
