Aquatic Center

Newly opened in fall 2014, Northview’s state-of-the-art swimming facility is committed to improving the health, safety, enjoyment and athletic competition of the Northview community.  The pool supports all competitive water sports with 13 lanes and two levels for diving (2 -1 meter boards and 1 – 3 meter board).  The pool has a 20 x 40-foot shallow area that can be used for activities such as swim lessons, water therapy and water aerobics.

If you have any questions on pool hours or programming, contact Suann at (616) 361-3466 or


We are experiencing a nationwide Lifeguard shortage that is affecting us right here in Northview. Therefore, there may be additional cancellations.

Aquatic staff will do all we can to avoid this, but we ask for your understanding as we keep your safety in the forefront.

If you know of anyone looking for a position as a guard, please forward this application to them. Lifeguards must take a minimum of 30 hours of training and are capable of saving your life. We sometimes look bored at work, but we really like boring! Next time you swim, thank a lifeguard!


    • Swim lessons are open for registration! Please see this PDF for more information.
