At this time plans for Warsaw Aqua Mile are in limbo. Thank you for swimming. Funds generated from Warsaw Aqua Mile helped purchase 7.5 acres of natural wetland on the west side of the lake. These wetlands are being set aside and will not be developed, as they're an integral part of the areas watershed and ecosystem. The area is rich with habitat home to many species including deer, herein and many others. Notably, Bald Eagles are now becoming a familiar site around the lake.

Thank you for helping us keep Center Lake great! 
In the future please look for Center Lake Warsaw on Facebook, which is where this site will be moving at some point in the future.

Best Regards,
Troy Turley
