City Aquatic Center Now Open

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. -

Almost 2 years after the ground-breaking, the final piece of the City Services Complex opened Saturday morning. The 57-thousand square foot Aquatic Center, also known as the natatorium, is now available for public swimming and lessons. It will also host the Columbus Hurricanes swim practices and meets.

The mayor, council members, and several department heads were on hand to open the building. Residents are glad they now have a place to take their families.

"It's going to enrich the family and community," said resident Shelia Lattimore.

"The community is going to grow. People will see that it's not just a dead area, it's a lot of things to do, family oriented things. You just have to be willing to get out and do things," said resident Verlyn Folkes.

Swimming Saturday was free for everyone. A 1 year family membership will cost residents $300.00.
