Parks & Recreation

Due to the current state of the COVID-19 pandemic and uncertainty going forward, we have decided not to open the Agnes Nolting Aquatic Complex this upcoming summer. This closure will allow the construction process for the new pool to start much sooner and should allow us to stay on schedule even with some weather delays over the winter. Join us in looking forward to having the new aquatic complex open in the summer of 2021!
