On September 22nd, Wakefield High School officially opened its Aquatics Center to the public, becoming the third high school in Arlington to renovate its facilities in the last five years. The beautiful new facilities include two pools, a “wet” classroom, a diving well with boards and platforms, and a spectator gallery for fans, parents and students to stay dry.
Additionally, the pool is equipped with state of the art timing systems as seen in Olympic events, where swimmers are timed by touching the wall of the pool – which will make for exciting races come swim season!
While the facility at Wakefield is brand new, services offered at the Aquatics enter will remain the same – with pool parties, swimming and water safety instruction courses, water aerobics and open swim to the community being offered at Wakefield. Please visit the Arlington Public School Aquatics Program website for times, fees and more information.
