  • Step 1: July 13, 2020: The opening of our Kroll Family Aquatics Center
  • Step 2: July 27, 2020: Outdoor Programming
  • Step 3: August 24, 2020: The opening of our Health + Wellness Center including cardio room, conditioning room, and personal training, Early Childhood, afterschool, PWW
    • Phase 1: November 9, 2020: Locker Rooms
    • Phase 2: January 11, 2021: Locker Room Showers
