North Shore Aquatic Center features a 50-meter pool with low diving board and a 12-foot-deep end, and a 25-yard training pool with zero depth entry. The kid-friendly facility's play feature pool includes flume slides and a large zero-depth entrance splash area. Water sprays from tall fountains and a fun-looking four-bucket splash device that looks like a boat mast fills up and dumps water on anyone below.
Locker rooms, coin-operated lockers and hot showers are available. The pool can also accomodate parties and private events. The center offers a variety of swimming classes and exercise activities. This heated pool is open year-round but there is a 10 percent charge added to the usual fees, from Nov. 1 to March 31.
North Shore Pool is located in North Shore Park, which overlooks Tampa Bay. The park contains a wilderness area, playground, lighted softball field, four lighted tennis courts, a dog park and beach area on the bay.
