The Beverly J. Warren Student Recreation and Wellness Center features a state-of-the-art natatorium, including two pools (lap and leisure), a rehabilitation vortex, a spa and so much more! A semi-enclosed shallow play area in the leisure pool is ideal for small children. Our leisure pool also features a zero-depth entry ramp and we have a water wheel chair available for patron use. Our 25-yard lap pool includes six lanes and a chair lift. Aquatics programs include Learn to Swim group lessons, Learn to Swim private/semi-private lessons, Golden Splashes youth swim team and the Kent State Swim Club adult swimming group.
The aquatics area is also responsible for offering a number of safety certifications and courses. The Department of Recreational Services is the largest safety certifier in Portage County, issuing an average of 600 safety certifications each year!
