Clearfield Aquatic Center

Water Fight! - Clearfield, Utah
We took our kids yesterday to the Clearfield Aquatics Center in Clearfield, Utah, located at 825 S. State St. not far off of the I-15 at Highway 193. It's in the same building as the North Davis Jr. High School.

The Clearfield Aquatics Center is a fantastic place to to take the kids. Much of it is indoors (open year round) and some of it is outdoors (open seasonally). There is a pool for laps and free swimming. There's a shallow pool for young kids with a water playground. There's a tall twisty water slide. There's a large splash pad. There's a shallow outdoor pool perfect for little ones. And plenty more. It's like a miniature water park!

I took our eight year old daughter on the big slide (twice, actually). She's a bit of a thrill seaker and, no surprise, she loved it! Even though there isn't an age requirement, I would hesitate allowing anyone younger than eight to use the slide, unless they are especially brave and a good swimmer.

At the base of the slide it says to wait for a signal from the lifeguard before climbing up the steps. But I didn't see the lifeguard until after I asked the guy behind me. Turns out the lifeguard is at the far end of the catch pool and the signal is a thumbs up. I'm not sure I would have figured this out on my own.

At times it seemed a bit crowded and at other times it seemed nearly empty. Someone was having a birthday party there, so perhaps this is why. I would think that this would be a great spot for a birthday party.

Our three kids had a ton of fun! It was a great place to splash. On a hot summer day it will be the perfect place to beat the heat.

The cost is $5.50 for adults, $3 for kids 4-17, and $1 for kids under 4. Those in diapers must wear a plastic "diaper" (which they have available for $3) around their swimming diaper. They are open seven days per week, but the hours are different each day, so it's a good idea to check their website before visiting.
