Huron Valley Schools hosts two indoor waterparks as well as fitness centers at both Milford and Lakeland High Schools. This weekend we ventured out to the Milford High School waterpark so we could share what they have to offer with you.
This amazing resource is located in the Milford High School, which is located in Highland, Michigan. The school is located south of M-59 on Milford Road near the Highland State Recreation Area.
The indoor waterpark includes a play structure with many interactive components that spray, zero depth entry, a two-story slide, a fun circular whirlpool for the kids (by the cactus in this picture), play area with an alligator, hot tub with jets (ages 16+) and plenty of room to swim.
I loved that all of this pool was easily navigated by my seven-year-old who was able to touch the bottom of the pool everywhere. Carlyn was over her head at times, but thanks to swimming lessons at Aqua Tots, she was confident and had a blast. Because she is under five, we kept both her within arms reach when the water was higher than her waist.
Naomi had a fantastic time going down the slides, playing in the water and jumping off the edge into the water. She was able to explore a little independently in the splash area, but we were always right there.
Milford High School provides life jackets in many different sizes. We let Naomi try one out for a bit. Towel hooks and benches are throughout the area, along with two common space showers. There are also family changing rooms, gender specific locker rooms, and community locker area.
Restrooms, swimsuit spinners, lockers (bring your own lock), showers (with soap), and electrical outlets are available in the locker rooms.
The lap pool is often used for swim meets, so if you want to lap swim, you should check before you go.
Overall, we had a fantastic time and thought that the current price of $6 for non-resident guests (ages three and up) was a great deal for all they have to offer. We would surely visit again if it were closer. We stayed for about three hours on a Saturday, arriving at around 1 pm, where the pool was much busier, but it almost cleared out by the time we left around 4 pm.
