MANATEE COUNTY, FL (May 20, 2022) – Fun is on-tap this summer at the Lincoln Aquatic Center. Nearly 150 thousand gallons of it. And it’s clear that this facility is already a hit. It took less than eight hours for all the test-splash slots to be filled for the soft-opening Memorial Day Weekend at the brand new swim-and-slide facility at Lincoln Park, located at 715 17th St E., in Palmetto.

Those who were able to sign up will have the chance to whoosh down a 30 MPH enclosed water slide, get drenched with 350 gallons of water from the iconic big bucket in the new splash area and swim some laps in the Competition pool during two-hour sessions Memorial Day Weekend.

Manatee County Parks and Natural Resources staff will review and revise their operations after the reduced capacity opening to determine best practices and provisions for a world-class experience as the facility fully opens for the full summer season.
