Lets Pool Our Resources To Strengthen Our Community

Carbondale is a great place to live and work... and the Make A Splash for Carbondale Committee wants
to make it even better! We're excited to announce our capital campaign to build an Outdoor Aquatic Center
in Carbondale. This project has been an aspiration of the community for over 40 years - and with your help, we can make it happen!


THE AQUATICS CENTER WILL IMPROVE OUR COMMUNITY BY:

- Expanding recreational and economic opportunities in our region
- Raising Carbondale's profile among visitors and potential new residents
- Improving the health and well-being of people of all ages
- Building community pride
- Providing competitive swimming opportunities for youth and adults

If you're excited about this new opportunity for our community and surrounding region, be sure to get involved! Show your support and donate to our Capital Campaign or contact us to become a member of the Aquatics Center planning committee.

ABOUT THE CENTER

With the support of federal grants and private contributions, the Outdoor Aquatic Center will host a variety of family-friendly features, including lap and leisure pools, a play structure and wading area for small children, a lazy river, waterslides, and a bath house. Learn More.
