Douglas Aquatic Center
Competitive and recreation swim. Community swimming lessons. Athlete rehabilitation. Water polo. Lifeguard training. Lots of fun.
The new aquatic center is designed with both
our Parker Lancers and neighbors in mind.
THE DOUGLAS AQUATIC CENTER
The Douglas Aquatic Center will enhance the physical education and athletic programs to strengthen student interest in water sports and competition and provide on-campus space for swim lessons, water activities, athletic competitions, and water safety instruction.
The Douglas Aquatic Center will also deepen summer program offerings, open new opportunities for interdisciplinary programming, and expand Parker’s public-purpose initiatives within the Linda Vista and greater San Diego communities by hosting open swim opportunities, water safety classes, and master swim programs.

The Douglas Aquatic Center has been named by Parker grandparents and parents of alumni, Judi and Jim Douglas.
We are certain that the design, construction, and operation of the new addition will be enjoyed by our students, teachers, and alumni for generations to come. We are proud to be associated with this fine project, and are gratified to name the Aquatic Center in support of the expansion and modernization of the Linda Vista Campus.
