Hall of Fame Fort Lauderdale Aquatic Center Continues Renovation

Ft-Lauderdale-Renovation -1

The Fort Lauderdale Aquatic Center at the International Swimming Hall of Fame continues with its renovation and new construction. There is still some ongoing discussion on the south locker room building as to its final design.  Looking at best-worst-case scenarios, the aquatic center could have a soft opening in June of 2021 (Next Year!) and an official opening in October of 2021.    The October Official opening could have a hard date of October 9th to coincide with the induction of the International Swimming Hall of Fame’s Class of 2021.

“Construction is moving along.  The first concrete placement for the Dive Well was Tuesday, August 4!  Whoo Hoo!!  The Main competition pool foundation and plumbing is complete too.” – Laura Voet – Aquatic Complex Manager for the City of Fort Lauderdale

    Very impressive. Quite a change from the pool I swam in for Jack Nelson in the summer of 1970.
