The Lafayette Recreation Department aquatic opportunities. 

The Rose Lueras pool at the Bob Burger Recreation Center is a large aquatic area with a number of pools (lap pool, lazy river, play pool) featuring slides, and a fun-for-little-ones new play pool feature. Included in the aquatics area are two hot tubs (indoor and outdoor), sauna, and steam room.  

The Great Outdoors Waterpark offers swimming, fitness classes, and all-day fun throughout the summer season.

The Boathouse at Waneka Lake Park has fun-in-the-sun with paddleboard, canoe, and paddleboat rentals!
