Family Aquatic Center in Frankfort




The Family Aquatic Center (Juniper Hills Aquatic Center) in Frankfort is still opened during the week (11:30-7:00) until August 12th. 

Starting August 13th, they will only be opened on Saturdays (11:00-6:00) and Sundays (12:30-6:00).
September 4th is the last day of the season!

My family went for the first time last weekend, and we loved it! They had so many different activities for every member of the family. My youngest, who is three, enjoyed the spray ground area and the shallow area that had a slide and climbing feature with a large bucket above it collecting and dumping water every few minutes. My five year old loved trying to jump across the lily pads that crossed one section of the pool. She also enjoyed the very tall rock wall, but didn't climb too far up. Everyone in the family enjoyed the wide red slide because we could all go down together. There were two other slides, which were faster, but still perfect for kids. My favorite was the lazy river. There were single and double tubes available to float around the river on. We went at 4 and took advantage of their twilight hours (half off admission)! You're not allowed to bring in food, but they had a nice concession area with reasonably priced food. We spent three hours there, and still weren't ready to leave! We will definitely be back before they close for the season!

Fees: 
Children 2 and under are FREE!
Children ages 3 to 10 are $4
Youth ages 11 to 17 are $5
Adults ages 18 to 59 are $6
Seniors ages 60 and over are $5

Twilight hours start at 4 pm and admission is then half off! We took advantage of this offer last weekend and the whole family got in for $10!


Follow them on Facebook here!
