[ARCHIVED] East Lansing Family Aquatic Center to Open Saturday, June 2

EAST LANSING, Mich. — The East Lansing Family Aquatic Center (ELFAC), 6400 Abbot Road, will officially open its doors for the 2018 summer season on Saturday, June 2. The 2018 season will run through Monday, Sept. 3.

ELFAC is an interactive outdoor water facility that provides a safe aquatic experience to patrons of all ages. Features of the facility include a 190-foot tube water slide, 140-foot body water slide, Splash Park, drop slide, diving board, youth frog slide and a number of interactive water-play structures. ELFAC also features a wet/dry sand play area, large sunbathing deck, zero-depth pool entry and concessions.

ELFAC offers daily, 10-visit and season passes to patrons. Patrons can also purchase combo passes, which can be used at the East Lansing Hannah Community Center (ELHCC), 819 Abbot Road, and the Aquatic Center. Group rates and private after-hours rentals are also available.

For the fourth year in a row, the lifeguard team working at ELFAC and the ELHCC pool has received Jeff Ellis & Associates’ prestigious Platinum International Aquatic Safety Award. Based on four unannounced safety audits conducted by Ellis & Associates last year, the award puts the East Lansing lifeguard team in the top 10 percent of the more than 600 facilities in the country that train under the lifeguarding principles of Ellis & Associates as it relates to aquatic safety.

“We take patron safety very seriously and strive to provide the best level of swimmer protection through the extensive training of our lifeguard team,” said East Lansing Department of Parks, Recreation & Arts Aquatic/Athletics Coordinator Jim Jennings.

Weather permitting, the Aquatic Center will open every day at 11 a.m. Patrons can contact ELFAC staff at (517) 333-2580 ext. 6949 (prior to June 2) or (517) 332-4420 (after June 2). Visit for rates, hours and additional information.
