HENRICO, Va. (WWBT) - Henrico County posted photos to Facebook on Friday of what the a new aquatics center will look like at Regency Square Mall.
The cost of the project, which will replace Macy’s, is about $18 million and will feature an eight-lane 50-meter pool and two three-lane 25-yard pools.
“Swimming is becoming more popular nationwide,” said NOVA of Virginia Aquatics Executive Director Ann McGee earlier this year. “It’s now the fourth most popular sport in the country … I think that this is a swimming community between the many swim clubs here and the number of kids who compete, who swim in their summer league programs, and now in schools.”
The project is a private-public partnership between the County, NOVA Swimming and Regency Square.
