Olympians, diving, swimming and family fun on tap for Marguerite Aquatics Complex Grand Re-Opening April 7
“Continuing Mission Viejo’s Olympic Tradition,” the Marguerite Aquatics Complex will make a historic splash for its Grand Re-Opening Celebration on Saturday, April 7.
Ushering in a new chapter of our City’s swimming and diving legacy, the event will give the community a chance to meet Olympians including Greg Louganis, Rowdy Gaines and our very own Brian Goodell. The celebration includes a diving demonstration, Nadadores’ historical timeline and photo opportunities with and autographs from the Olympians.
Families will enjoy crafts and games like Olympic torch making and an Olympic ring toss. There will be two water obstacle courses with timed heats for swimmers to take home a ribbon; splash time with a chance to walk on water in bubble balls; and other fun activities in and out of the pool. (A swim test is required for all pool activities.) Entry to the event is FREE with food trucks providing delectable fare for purchase.
