Now the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center (MCAC) is getting a much deserved makeover.
Beginning on June 1, 2015, the Aquatic Center will close for approximately one year to allow for renovations.
“Our goal is to provide state of the art facilities to serve the recreational needs of all Mecklenburg County residents,” said Park and Recreation Director Jim Garges. “This project will go a long way in enhancing the overall experience for patrons who swim and workout at the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center.”
To accommodate patrons, Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation staff will hold an information session on Sept. 10 to provide updates and answer questions. The meeting is set for 6 p.m. at the Grady Cole Center, 310 S. Kings Drive.
The Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center, located at 800 E. Martin Luther King Jr. Drive in uptown Charlotte, opened in 1991 as the County’s first 50-meter competition pool. The facility also includes as 25-meter therapeutic pool, a fitness center and a hot tub.
