We're just getting our feet wet, the best is yet to come!
The Eaton Area Community Center is home to one of two Myrtha Pools in Colorado. This innovative aquatics center was constructed by the same company that manufactures the pool for many of the world class competitions including the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics, World Championships and USA Olympic Trials. Built in Italy, but assembled in Eaton, this high performance, and energy conserving aquatics center is more than just another pool. Your aquatics center includes these innovative features: high efficiency boilers, automatic daylight sensor controls, 40 skylights, low water usage Defender filtration systems, and the use of Ultraviolet light for peak water sanitation throughout the pool. All these combine to bring to Eaton a safe, state of the art facility sure to bring smiles to all ages!
