The Huntsville Aquatics Center, formerly known as the Brahan Spring Park Natatorium, recently finished renovations that include the addition of a 50-meter Competition Pool and a warm water Instructional Pool in addition to the Legacy Pool, original to the former “Nat.” With these renovations, the City now has two Olympic size pools for competition use and the largest spectator seating capacity in the state with over 1,400 seats. The Instructional Pool provides warm water therapy at 90 degrees, an in water bench with jets and a handicapped access ramp into the water. The Instructional Pool replaces the therapy pool at the Jim Williams Aquatic Center.

Swim lessons, public swim, water aerobics, and other classes are also offered at the Huntsville Aquatics Center, 2213 Drake Ave SW, Huntsville, AL 35805.
