ORO VALLEY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Oro Valley Aquatic Center is located right next to Canyon Del Oro High School, near Oracle and Calle Concordia.

It recently won the 2013 Outstanding Facility Award from the Arizona Parks and Recreation Association, a major feat for a facility that officially opened back in March 2013. 

The Aquatic Center caters to a wide range of users, from competitive swimmers to families that just want to use the pool to cool off.   The Center has an Olympic sized competitive pool, a recreation/warm up pool, a splash pad, water slide and diving boards; in addition to a concession stand and dressing rooms for families. 

Oro Valley officials hoped the facility would make the town a sports tourism destination, as well as offer residents a place to keep cool during the summer.

The future has the Aquatic Center hosting the National Synchronized Swimming Championships in 2014, after having gotten the center's ‘feet wet' by hosting several state and regional-level competitions.
