Overview - Named in honor of Dick Anderson, Cal Poly professor emeritus of physical education and a former Mustang athletic director, the Anderson Aquatic Center is the newest collegiate pool facility in the Western United States.

Positioned between the Mustang Tennis Complex, Mott Gymnasium and Cal Poly's student recreation center, the main Myrtha-built pool and its accompanying 15-by-30-foot all-shallow therapy pool not only offer Cal Poly varsity swimmers one of the nation's finest swimming complexes but a state-of-the art facility ideally suited to year-round outdoor training.
