I use the Silliman Center for birthday parties, rainy/hot day outings and swimming lessons for my son. The pool is heated, has friendly staff and is very clean. The facility has so many things to offer: swimming, a fitness room, preschool, basketball, lifeguard training, Lego engineering, etc.

Its a great place to bring the kids and spend some time there swimming. Over all it was a nice and fun experience. Sometimes the smell of chlorine was a little much. But I dealt with it.

I took classes at Silliman Aquatic Center. So did two of my grandchildren. I had fun. And they had fun learning to swim. We liked the food center, too.

Great for small parties and fun for the family. It caters to both young and old. The pools are heated and the slides and water features are a lot of fun for the kids.

We came here because it was recommended by a family member and it did not disappoint. The indoor pool was the highlight of the center with slides, play areas, and a lazy river. The pool has something for kids of all ages. We went with three kids under the age of five and all three were highly entertained. The pool... More

If you don't want to open why bother even having the pool?? It would be an ok place, but it is never open. Really dumb planning to have the pool only open on parts of weekends. I Bought memberships and haven't been able to take the kids at all.

This indoor pool is the nicest I've ever been to. It is super clean well run. I go for lap swimming. but they have a great slide and lazy river for the kids. The party rooms are simply fantastic- I have not had a kids party here yet- but I am planning too.
