Aquatic Center Renovations

The Aquatic Center had its annual two week maintenance closure September 3-15, 2019.

During this time, staff was able to make several repairs and extensive cleaning in the aquatic center.

Special projects included replacing the motor for the kiddie pool; deep cleaning and renovating the gym, including replacing an old tread mill with a newer version; draining and scrubbing all pools; deep cleaning locker rooms and making repairs to sinks and showers; pressure washing floors and extensive changes to the lobby.

Staff removed the old lobby counters and reception area, re-stained the lobby floors, built new lobby counters and installed a new desk in the lobby. Staff has received an outpouring of positive feedback on the changes to the lobby since we reopened September 16.
