Splash Montana has been a big hit since 2006 with both locals and tourists. Three water slides, a lazy river, the children’s water playground plus the Crazy Creek Café make Splash Montana an all-day destination for families.  The Lake 50-meter pool has eight competition/lap lanes and adds nearly 12,300 square feet of water space to Splash Montana for competitive swimming, lap swimming, swim lessons, water polo, water volleyball and basketball. Both Missoula aquatics facilities are fully ADA-compliant and have a wheelchair lift and water wheelchair.  Certified lifeguards, shaded lounge chairs and full-service locker rooms make Splash Montana a safe and fun way to cool off this summer.
