The Marguerite Aquatics Complex contains a 50-meter, Olympic-size swimming pool, a 45-foot-tall dive tower with doublewide platforms, a dive pool, a shallow pool, dryland training areas and a spa. Additionally, the complex includes shaded grandstands and state-of-the-art scoreboards, a sound system and closed-circuit TVs. The facility is the training center and competition home of the Mission Viejo Nadadores, one of the largest swimming and diving clubs in the United States and renowned for producing Olympic-caliber athletes.

The dive tower was designed to meet the requirements of synchronized diving competitions, making it the only qualifying tower in Southern California. The Marguerite Aquatics Complex is unique in that it can serve the competitive and training needs of Olympic swimming and diving athletes, as well as serve the community’s needs for learn-to-swim classes and recreation. The competitive capabilities of the facility truly are forward-thinking, as the amenities would allow Olympians to train there prior to Tokyo in 2021 and Paris in 2024. The location of the facility relative to Los Angeles also could be advantageous for the Olympic Games planned for Los Angeles in 2028.
