The Castaic Aquatic Center opened to a large crowd looking to make a splash Friday morning at the Castaic Sports Complex.
“The new recreational center this project was a great success,” said Los Angeles County Director of Parks and Recreation Russ Guiney.
The center brings the county’s number of pool facilities to 28.
“Today we could have a future Olympian getting into this pool today,” Guiney said.
The new facility offers a number of amenities including parent and tot classes, swim team training, water polo, aquatic aerobic and more.
“This is a work class project,” said County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.
The 13 million dollar project yields a 6,245 square foot pool inside of a 12,500 square foot building.
The center also features a 4,435 square foot aerobics unit with a splash pad.
“We’ve worked with the community to seek their needs and make sure they were included,” Antonovich said.
Swim lessons begin Monday.
