Parents applying sunscreen on their children, kids going down the water slides, girls attempting to keep their balance on floating lily pads..and boys jumping off the diving board...The city of Aurora has something new to brag about. After its grand opening ceremony the Aurora Aquatic Facility is ready for families to come and enjoy the water this summer.

"You attact, what pleases me most, is the parents, both parents often attend as well as their children and we have not had that in the past because we haven't had the type of facility that lent itself to having all of the adults that are currently here. We were seeking to have a way for both grandparents, parents and children to participate," said Marlin Seeman, the Mayor of Aurora.

What's great about the Aurora Aquatic Facility is it's great for kids and adults.

Equipped with a zero-depth splash area perfect for young children, five 25-meter swimming lanes, lounge area and two different slides, kids say the new pool is where they want their parents to take them this summer.

"I'm going to tell them to please bring me here," said Carter Ruhnke an Aurora resident.

Mayor Seeman says he knows the new pool will improve the quality of life in the community.
