About The Rosen Aquatic & Fitness Center
An Extraordinary Past
“I remember arriving at the center one day and finding some Special Olympians hovering about,” said Harris Rosen. “One of the youngsters recognized me as a swimmer there. They asked me if they’d done something wrong to have it closed. It broke my heart. I knew I had to do something.” At that moment, Rosen, a local hotelier, became an activist for the aquatic and fitness center.
Harris Rosen rallied support from Orlando organizations, celebrities, and from Orange County itself. He understood the importance of the aquatic and fitness center to the community. As an avid swimmer himself, he knows how one’s fitness can define and develop character. Fast forward to today when the ownership of the aquatic and fitness center, previously known as the Rosen YMCA Aquatic Center, is now in the hands of those who saved it. (Here’s another true story about our exciting history.)
With courage, drive, and determination, the mission of the non-profit Rosen Aquatic & Fitness Center is to elevate the health and wellness of those who enter our facility through inclusive and supportive programs that benefit athletes and community members of all abilities. Through our mission, we also proudly serve as a supportive and vital member of Orange County by expanding our efforts to include community-benefiting events to improve the wellness of our local community.
We strive to make a positive impact on the community, and we need your help.
