EDMOND — A groundbreaking ceremony for the Edmond Recreation and Aquatics Center is scheduled for 10:30 a.m.
The $22.47 million competitive swimming pool and recreation center is a partnership between the city, Edmond Public Schools and the YMCA.
The center will be built in J.L. Mitch Park, 2733 Marilyn Williams Drive, off Covell Road, just west of Kelly Avenue.
The center will have a 50-meter swimming pool with seating for up to 800 spectators. The recreation center will have a traditional fitness center, gym and family aquatics area.
The building will be owned by the city, but the YMCA will operate the center, and the schools' swim teams will use the competitive pool.
Plans are to have the center open in late spring or early summer 2013.
