Commissioners today approved a major renovation of the 15-year-old Bogan Park Aquatic Center. The project includes new roof panels, new HVAC and filtration systems and locker room renovations to improve operational and energy efficiencies.
The aquatic center provides year-round recreational swim opportunities for all ages and includes two indoor swimming pools – a competition pool used for swimming lessons, lap swimming and swim/dive teams and a family leisure pool consisting of a water playground, lazy river and water slide.
Funding for the renovation project comes from the 2005 SPLOST program. The $3.15 million contract was awarded to low bidder Bryson Construction Inc.
The aquatic center will close in February and reopen in September. Gwinnett’s other indoor aquatic centers at Bethesda Park, Collins Hill Park, Mountain Park and West Gwinnett Park will be open as usual. Pool pass holders can use their passes at any Gwinnett County aquatic facility.
