As summer approaches, the grand opening exhibits the accomplishment of moving forward to a more community-based city. Elk Grove City Council, city staff, and partners were present in the ceremony as they have long waited for this center.

Due to construction delays, the center opened this year instead of last year. The opening ceremony has been a 10-year journey for the city. Even though it stalled for a few years, the original plans began in 2006 and the approval of the amenities in 2011 by Elk Grove City Council.

The Elk Grove Aquatic Center

The Elk Grove Aquatic Center is equipped with amenities that the community is looking forward to. More specifically, the Elk Grove Aquatic Center has a 50-meter length pool, a recreational pool, a lazy river, water slides, and a cafe.

To be more specific, the Elk Grove Aquatic Center has three pools. First, the competition pool for regional and national swim meets. Second, an instructional pool for teaching and classes. And lastly, a recreational pool for general community use.
