(The ground has been broken)…Construction starts Monday.
It is for the long awaited Aquatic Center in El Centro. The over $15 million facility will be constructed at Adams Park, from 4th to 6th Streets. It should be finished in 2019. When it is opened, it will include an 8-lane competitive pool with shaded bleachers and scoreboard, a 75 foot by 27 foot warm-up pool, 1,600 square foot kids wading pool with play equipment, a lazy river, an administrative and event building and storage area. Eventually a water slide will be added. The Groundbreaking Ceremony was held at the site Wednesday.
