Temperatures are on the rise and everyone is looking for a way to stay cool, and the Oro Valley Aquatic Center is offering several activities for those on a budget! 

The first is to purchase a Family Summer Pass, which admits a family (up to six people) and is valid from May 13 to August 13. Oro Valley's Aquatic Center has an interactive splash pad, giant water slide, two swimming pools and four diving boards. Cost for Oro Valley residents is $120; non-resident cost is $150.
