Google Searched “Aquatic Centre”:

The frist 10 pages (250 results?) were all places for swimming. no animals. Places were located all over the English speaking world. including descriptions of foreign places. I stopped looking. 

The place where the London Olympics swimming took place was the "400 million dollar 'Aquatic Centre'”

Usually for a “mixed use” term, Google will put a variety of different results on the first page, but none were anything other than swimming pools for trianing/sports.

It seems to be a commonly used term for what we are looking for. 

maybe you thinking of the common term “aquatic Life” - a common term for things that live in water, but a place for aquatic life is commonly known as an “aquarium" or a "marine zoo/park" or a “sea world”. 

"Life Aquatic” is a wonderful Wes Anderson movie. But that Didn’t come up either.
