Henrico and YMCA of Greater Richmond officials joined friends and community supporters Wednesday, May 14 to break ground on the Henrico Aquatics Center, a first-of-its-kind facility for the county that will help address a Board of Supervisors’ initiative to “make Henrico drown-proof.”
The 21,000-square-foot facility will be built on 6 acres of county-owned property between the Eastern Henrico Recreation Center and the Health Department East Clinic on North Laburnum Avenue.
Fairfield District Supervisor Frank J. Thornton said he had “long dreamed of having a pool” in the eastern Henrico community.
Officials from Henrico, Henrico County Public Schools and the YMCA of Greater Richmond announced plans for the $8 million, 20,000-square-foot aquatics center.
