Fun Swim in the Lap Pool 

On Saturday, you’ll find a fun swim in the lap pool at Millennium Place. Children over the age of eight can visit on their own, with friends, but parents must accompany children under the age of eight. It’s a great way to run off (or swim off) some of that winter energy. Plus, younger kids can enjoy the toddler sectioning the wave pool!


Explore the Wildlife Underpass

Just a short hike from the road is a wildlife underpass that you can explore with the kids. With vehicles on top, a creek and a fun place to explore, it’s one of those places that makes for the perfect fall adventure.
