The beautiful John S. Hillman Memorial Aquatic Center, located on the California State University, Bakersfield campus, is the practice and competition facility of the 2011 MPSF Champion men's swimming team and the women's swimming and water polo teams.

The aquatics center was completed in April of 1983 and contains an eight-lane, 50-meter competition pool with a 10-lane short course, and a separate six-lane 3-foot deep training pool. There are one- and three-meter diving boards, and the pool is heated year-round.

The complex also boasts an electronic scoreboard and a Colorado timing system which computerizes results. When swimmers touch the pool pads their times are displayed on the scoreboard, then are relayed through cables to a computer located in the office. The computer then seeds the athletes and sets up heats based on the finish times. In addition, bleachers and canopies are available for spectators.

An office, a mechanical room for filtering and treatment, restrooms, and a dry-land training facility complete the center.
