Council For Quality Growth Visits New Cherokee County Aquatic Center

Council for Quality Growth hosted Cherokee Advisory at the Cherokee County Aquatic Center this month. The Aquatic Center opened its doors this month to a beautiful new facility in Holly Springs. The facility boasts several amenities including the following:

  •  Indoor 50 Meter Competition Pool
  •  Indoor 25 yard Recreation Pool
  •  Indoor Classrooms
  •  Outdoor Leisure Pool
    • Water playground
    • Two water Slides
    • 250 ft. Lazy River
    • Beach Entry
    • Pavilions
    • Concessions

Council Members enjoyed a tour given by Brian Reynolds, Director of Recreation and Parks in Cherokee County, around the huge facility. The pools, both inside and out, have cutting edge technology to keep the pool safe and sanitary for its patrons, as well as comfortable. Even with all amenities it provides, the Aquatic Center still came in more than $600,000 under budget.

Because the facility has 21 lanes, all of which are adjustable distances, local high school and USS teams will be utilizing the facility for practice and competition. Additionally, the Aquatic Center will provide swim lessons, aquatic aerobic classes, scout programs, birthday party packages, and water safety training.

The beautiful facility, designed by Cooper Carry, is just one in a line of new developments in Cherokee County. Reynolds stated that the Recreation and Parks department currently holds 4,500 acres in property.
