Q: When will the new facility open?
A:Anticipated opening by January 2019
Q:What does the new facility include?
A:The new construction includes an 11,080sf gymnasium with 2 full size courts plus storage. There will be an elevated 3-lane track around the perimeter of the gymnasium (14 laps/1mile). There will also be a new 8,347 sf natatorium which includes: (4) 25-meter lap lanes, a lazy river, social/program area, a zero depth entry area with a play structure and water features, waterslide, whirlpool spa, steam/sauna rooms, an aquatic climbing wall, basketball hoops and volleyball. The water temp will be 86 and the air temp will be 87. There will be a new entrance on the southeast side of the building along with a new lobby, new locker rooms, new childcare space, new party/community rooms and casual activity space with vending. The existing pool and party room space will be renovated into the new 7,000sf fitness center and a fitness loft will be added in that area.
Q:Will any areas within the existing rec center close during construction?
•The existing fitness center and the gymnasium will remain open throughout construction.
•The existing pool and pool party room will remain open as long as possible. Those areas are scheduled to close 6 months prior to opening the new facility. We have an agreement with the City of Seven Hills for pool use during this time for members and residents. Details on the pool use at Seven Hills will be released very soon.
•The front entrance (facing Broadview Road), the main lobby and possibly the staircase/elevator in the southeast corner of the building will be closed beginning July 2017.
•The roadway in front of the recreation center will be closed for several months beginning in July 2017. Patrons will need to access the splash park and playground area by following the drive that goes behind the current recreation center to access the parking lot in that area.
