Bruce Gresly Aquatic Center

Founded in the mid 1970s and formerly named the Lander Swimming Pool, the Bruce Gresly Aquatic Center offers our students and community members opportunities for aquatic education and recreation. It also hosts state swim meets and events.

We’re pleased to offer the following to the Lander community:

Adult Exercise Class

This class uses water resistance to tone muscles and moderately raise the heart rate. The low-impact exercise helps with strength, circulation, and overall health. This class is great for people with joint problems.

  • Cost: $3.00 per class
  • Punch cards available—50 punches for $115 or 25 punches for $57.50

Water Aerobics Class

Our water aerobics class takes things up a notch by utilizing water resistance and other equipment to tone muscle and increase heart rate. In comparison to the adult exercise, this is a more intense class.

  • Cost: $3.00 per class
  • Punch cards available—50 punches for $115 or 25 punches for $57.50

Local Attractions

Here are just a few sites to see and learn why Lander is so great.

Sinks Canyon State Park
In the Wind River Mountains on the middle fork of the Popo Agie River, Sinks Canyon is named after a distinct geologic phenomena in which the Popo Agie river disappears into a limestone cavern and reappears a quarter mile down canyon in a peaceful pool filled with 8–12 pound Rainbow trout. The canyon also provides a variety of recreational opportunities including rock climbing, hiking and bike trails, nature studies, camping, photography, and fishing.

Museum of the American West
Several different groups that inhabited central Wyoming helped establish the American West. This museum celebrates the diversity and cultural history of these groups in its unique, not-for-profit 8.61 acre outdoor/indoor museum complex. Visitors enjoy an engaging and unforgettable cultural history experience.

Popo Agie Falls Trail
After a moderately difficult 1.5 mile hike that begins at 7,800 feet elevation and climbs only 650 feet, hikers are rewarded with a refreshing swimming hole and a series of waterfalls, including Popo Agie Falls. Bring a picnic lunch and your swimming suit, and slide down the rock slide of the waterfall. Life doesn’t get much better than this!

Wind River Wild Horse Sanctuary
Take a tour to see wild mustangs up close, learn about Native American culture, and experience life on a working cattle ranch of the Wind River Indian Reservation. The sanctuary provides professional care in a free-roaming environment.

Fremont County Pioneer Museum
This museum collects, preserves, and interprets artifacts from the Lander Valley, Fremont County, and western Wyoming dating from prehistoric times through the 1920s.

Beaver Creek Nordic Ski Area
With 150 trails and 23 lifts throughout more than 1800 acres, visitors and residents enjoy the mountain year round. Fishing, hiking, horseback riding, and more during warm weather months, downhill and cross-country skiing in the winter, along with award-winning restaurants and upscale galleries will give your family and friends an incomparable experience together.
