It’s taken two years and more than four million dollars, but the Twin Pike Family YMCA is officially opening its new aquatics center Saturday.
The new parking lot still must be finished, but everything else is ready to go. Signs will be in place to direct visitors.
Executive Director Marsha Garrison expects a big crowd for the first weekend. Hours are 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sunday. Regular hours will begin next week.
Money for the project came from the Mabee Foundation and donations. The facility was to welcome swimmers July 1st, but construction on a retaining wall was delayed by heavy rains. A formal grand opening is still set for September 19th.
