PROSSER, Wash. -- Summer is making a splash this year in Prosser. That's because after three years in the making, the city's new aquatic center is almost open.
The lap pool is finished, and was being filled up with water on Tuesday. It will be open to the public on Monday, June 13th at 1 p.m. but that's only a portion of the aquatic center. The recreational pool right next to it, with all the fun the slides will not be finished until June 24th and open to the public on June 27th. Either way, they expect a lot of people to show up this Monday.
Ruth Watkins, the Pool Manager says, "our community is really excited about it. We expect there to be a lot of people. Normally we get a lot of kids here on that day because that's supposed to be the last day of school for us here in Prosser."
Day passes cost $4 for adults and $2 for kids. There are also season and family passes available on the city's website. The project to replace the city's 53 year old pool cost about $2.4 million.
