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.
