It was a nonstop, splashing fun summer at Bloomington Family Aquatic Center. After a one-year hiatus and unseasonably hot weather, BFAC was a favorite destination all summer. To kick off the season, BFAC welcomed 1,600 guests during its record-setting opening weekend. 

Residents and visitors were able to cool off poolside thanks to a waterslide and some interactive play features. Except for the closed concession stand, operations mostly returned to normal at BFAC this year. 

Seasonal pool passes were sold online for the first time this year. “In uncertain times, we had to make some adjustments,” Recreation Supervisor David Benson said. “Selling passes online is one of the adjustments we’ll keep.” 

The season closed out with 3,273 season pass holders. For more information about BFAC, visit
