Family Aquatic Center

Aquatic Center


After two years of being closed, East Lansing Parks, Recreation & Arts staff are thrilled to be able to reopen and show off the updated Aquatic Center; however, a 2022 opening date is not able to be set at this time. Delays in final construction and supply chain interruptions are impacting staff's ability to confidently announce an opening date; however, the facility will be opening, and the opening date will be shared widely as soon as it is confirmed. The community's patience is appreciated as staff works through these challenges.

The East Lansing Family Aquatic Center (ELFAC), 6400 Abbot Road, 
is an interactive outdoor water facility that provides a safe, family-oriented aquatic experience to patrons. The ELFAC is expected to open in early July 2022 for the summer season after undergoing several renovations and upgrades.

The Family Aquatic Center features a number of interactive water features, including:

Picnic Areas

Picnic tables are available outside the facility for those who wish to bring their own food. Coolers (except for group reservations) and glass are not permitted inside the facility.

Hours of Operation

The East Lansing Family Aquatic Center will be open for the 2022 season. Once an opening date is confirmed, hours of operation will be posted. See above for more information.
