The Boardman Pool and Recreation Center officially opened to the public this past weekend.
The recreation center has been a vision of the community for over 30 years that began to solidify with the passing by voters of a $12.390 million bond in November 2014.
“Our vision of this recreation center is to provide a safe, affordable space for our community to enjoy,” stated Karen Pettigrew, Boardman Park & Recreation District board chair, “and to encourage more of the commuting workforce to move their families to our community.”
The Boardman Pool & Recreation Center is approximately 43,000 square feet and includes a 4-lane swimming pool with a two-story slide, therapy pool, and 27-foot tall Climbing Wall. It also includes several named/sponsored areas such as the Tillamook Gymnasium, Boardman Foods Multi-Purpose Room, Port of Morrow Weights and Cardio room, Lamb Weston Aerobics Room and Umatilla Electric Lifeguard Station. Other naming opportunities are still available.
The center will be open with extended operating hours daily, with 24-hour access to some amenities. The community has the opportunity to enroll in annual memberships, month-to-month memberships, or can drop in for a daily rate.
