The City Centre Aquatic Complex is an indoor aquatic centre featuring an Olympic size swimming pool in the Town Centre area of Coquitlam, British Columbia. The building was designed by Vic Davies Architect Ltd., built at a cost of $8.2 million, and opened in March 1994. The decor has a Florida Keys theme, with palm trees and pelicans, hanging silk buntings, and hand painted murals. The pools use ozone for secondary water purification.

The 8-lane, 50 metre Olympic length swimming pool features:

  • Adjustable depth flooring (up to 2 metres)
  • Two moveable bulkheads
  • 1m and 3m diving boards
  • Rope swing
  • Mini Zip line

The adjacent "tropical lagoon" free form play area features:

  • Wave pool
  • Lazy river
  • Mock rescue boat with fire nozzle
  • Large rain drop
  • Water spraying alligator and pelican
  • 54 metre waterslide (that protrudes outside the building)
  • Moderate temperature bubble pool
  • Higher temperature whirlpool
  • Steam room
  • Dry sauna

In addition, the 3,000-square-foot (280 m2) fitness centre is equipped with cardiovascular conditioning equipment, strength training equipment, and free weights. The facility also includes a poolside café, viewing terrace, multi-purpose rooms, and a physiotherapy clinic.

The temperature in the pool area is kept at approximately 29.5 °C (85 °F), while the fitness centre is air conditioned to a more cooler temperature.
