The city’s new 90,000 sq. ft Huntsville Aquatics Center opened in July 2017. The stunning new facility features three large pools, new restrooms, conference and hospitality space, offices and concessions, and a new terrace overlooking the Brahan Spring Park lagoon. This incredible facility will enable the city to serve more people than ever, with the addition of swim meets, classes, senior therapy sessions, and swim lessons.

With the 56,400 sq. ft. addition to the Brahan Natatorium, the facility includes a new 50-meter competition pool and a new instructional pool for therapy and swim instruction. The city now has two Olympic size pools for competition use and the largest spectator seating capacity in the state for 1,500 patrons. The 22,000 sq. ft. natatorium addition features:
