So long Florence Aquatic Center, and hello park is city’s plan

Visitors to the closed Florence Aquatic Center could float along on a lazy river feature in years past.

The time to enjoy a dip in the four-acre Florence Aquatic Center is likely at an end as city officials announced plans Tuesday to replace the closed pool with a park.

The aquatic center that features a pool and lazy river was opened in 2003 on the Florence Government Center campus off Ewing Boulevard.

The water world has been closed since the end of the 2019 season with COVID-19 restrictions being to blame for 2020 and 2021 closures.

Construction on a new park on the aquatic center grounds could start as early as this September once decisions are made on what amenities to include, according to the release sent from the mayor's office on behalf of all council members.

The opening of a new park could happen as early as the end of 2022.
