About the Center
Bill Paine, a local Manistee citizen, presented to a joint meeting of the City of Manistee and Manistee Area Public School Boards a proposal to build a community pool for the Manistee area. The City of Manistee and Manistee Area Public Schools both agreed to accept the proposed project and entered into an Interlocal Services Agreement on the operation and maintenance costs for the building. The proposal called for the pool to be attached to the Manistee High School facilities. The pool opened in July of 2009.
Please refer to the Paine Aquatic Center News tab for any potential pool schedule changes.
