We went to a birthday party at Swim Northwest Aquatics Center about a year ago and we had such a fun time. For this party, it was just those of us who were invited, as they rented it privately. But you can have a party for free there as well, if you do so during "open swim" hours. The pool isn't very big, but we still had a great time. One end is shallow and it gets deeper as you get closer to the other end of the pool. There was a little area with tables and chairs set up as well as floaty devises for the kids. There were stairs going in and out of the pool which makde it great for the younger kids at the party. The dressing rooms were clean and so were the showers. There are lockers as well as hangers for you items. Clean showers too.
