New Aquatics Facility and Renovated Eppes Recreation Center Officially Open
With one slice of a ribbon on Friday, the City of Greenville officially opened its new aquatics facility and newly-renovated Eppes Recreation Center.
Located at Thomas Foreman Park, the Greenville Outdoor Aquatics Facility and Eppes Recreation Center were recently completed after less than a year of construction. Both will officially open to the public on Saturday, June 4.
"This is a day of celebration indeed," Mayor P.J. Connelly said.
Greenville's new aquatics facility includes a 165,000-gallon pool, six competition-style lap lanes, and a slide. Additionally, there is a 4,000-square foot bath house at the $4 million facility. The new pool is replacing the City's old community pool, which is 49 years old and scheduled to be demolished this summer.
This aquatics facility will be a place that families and friends can gather to take a break from the heat," Connelly said. "It will also be a place where people of all ages can bond with others in the community while enjoying the health benefits that a pool can provide."
