Pardon our dust!: Kids Play Redesign

We’re tentatively scheduled to break ground on our new Kids Play space on Friday, October 27th. During construction, Kids Play will temporarily relocate to the Community Room with Kids Play hours remaining the same.  

For more information on the new Kids Play space, Explorer Point, go here.

Sauna Repairs 

In August, the sauna’s heating element was damaged by water. Replacement parts arrive in early October. Remember it’s a “dry sauna”—please don’t pour water on the heating element.  

Indoor Pool HVAC  

Our indoor pool HVAC faced challenges this summer with a control board failure in late June, leading to a 15+ week wait for parts due to supply chain issues. We apologize for any inconvenience and anticipate repairs this fall.
