Columbia Athletic Club at Juanita Bay is excited to announce the completion of their NEW aquatic center, which will be ready for swimmers, splashers and oglers on February 11th. The much anticipated multi-million dollar project was constructed by Red Hawk Group and includes a 25 yard lap pool, a 17 yard teaching pool for aqua therapy/lessons, and a hot tub. In addition to the salt water pools, surrounded by white and blue tile work and new high ceilings, there are also four new private family changing stations.
Above is a rendition shot taken from the southeast corner of the building. Don't worry, you don't have to wear a speedo like the cartoon man in there. Below that are some current photos I took as the tiling gets completed and they start preparing to fill the pools with almost 100,000 gallons of water. The lap pool will be kept at 84 degrees and the teaching pool at 90 degrees. Dave Hamilton, Manager of the club (photo) said, "We appreciate everyone's patience through the process. Not only the members, but the neighbors and others that have been impacted too."
Sounds like a great reason to have a party! Everyone can come check it out (members AND non-members) and celebrate at the grand opening on Feb 18th from 8am-8pm where there will be food, raffles and giveaways. ~j
