WAC & Peterson Pool open for business!

Summer is officially here! Mayor Dennis M. Clough opened the Westlake Aquatic Center & Peterson Pool on Saturday, June 5, by once again “testing” the waterslides at the facility.

This year, he raced his grandson, Danny, down the slide! The Mayor reached the bottom first and they both had a great time! Video of their trip down the slide is available for video-on-demand (VOD) viewing online and via the Westlake Community Access Channel streaming apps.

Before ascending the steps to the top of the steeper (and faster) of the two waterslides, Mayor Clough used the facility's PA system to address the early-birds who had filtered into the WAC on the sunny, hot summer morning. 

“I just wanted to officially welcome everyone to this year’s season at the Westlake Aquatic Center & Peterson Pool,” Mayor Clough said. “Obviously last year was not the best, but we’re going to more than make up for it this year.”

He also acknowledged all of the lifeguards who will be working throughout the summer to ensure that everyone is safe while enjoying the facility’s many amenities. These amenities include a lazy river, an activity pool and a splash pad.

Weather conditions this year were much better than in 2020 when, with temperatures hovering in the low 60s, the mayor opened the facility with a dive into Peterson Pool in addition to his now trademark waterslide plunge.
