Grindley Aquatic & Wellness Campus Update

Posted on December 04, 2017

The pool may be closed while Lakesiders are away, but activity at the Grindley Aquatic & Wellness Campus is continuing just as it has since the day the construction began. We currently anticipate being able to open the Wellness Center to Lakesiders at the beginning of the 2018 season.

Workers are making significant progress on both the inside and the outside of the new Wellness Center. The ceiling in all rooms was finished in November. The preparation kitchen cabinets have been installed, and the storage room for the wellness equipment like yoga balls and exercise mats is being finished. In the exercise room, where treadmills and other machinery will be placed, the lighting is being added to the ceiling, with lockers almost installed. The next step is to add the flooring, technology and exercise equipment. Flooring, lighting and other technology are also still in progress in the classroom/banquet space.

In the entire building, a fresh blue color has been painted on the inside to welcome Lakesiders and give them a peaceful place to continue their wellness journeys.

Siding and paint are almost complete on the exterior of the building, and once spring arrives, landscaping will be added to the west side of the pool building and in front of the Wellness Center. Only a few finishing touches remain before this final piece of construction is complete.
