Project Amenities

The aquatic center was planned by a group of committed citizens, elected officials, administrators from five local municipalities, and Penn State representatives. Their vision created a partnership among Highspire, Londonderry Township, Lower Swatara Township, Middletown, Royalton, and Penn State Harrisburg, making it possible to design a state-of-the-art facility that provides the communities and university access to year-round aquatic programming.

The aquatic center swimming pool is uniquely designed to permit maximum use for aerobics, swimming lessons, workouts, wellness, and leisure. The 9,000 sq. ft. complex provides a six-lane lap pool (37 ft. x 75 ft.).

Other programming spaces include a fitness center and gymnasium, readily available to student athletes for working out and keeping in top form for aquatic competitions.
