Boardman's new rec center expected to open in July

Posted: Updated:

BOARDMAN, OR - We brought you a few stories yesterday about the significant economic growth happening in Boardman, Oregon. Now they're excited to announce another new addition to their community.

It's something the small town of Boardman has never had before. They broke ground on a 40,000 square foot indoor facility about a year ago.

Inside you can find a dry side and a wet side. The dry side will have two full multi-purpose courts, a full weight, cardio, and aerobic room and a 38-foot rock climbing wall. On the wet side, there will be three pools: a heated therapy pool, a pool for laps, and a kids' pool. Scott Green with Boardman Recreation Facilities told reporter Jaclyn Selesky that this is just another sign that their community is prospering.

"Things are just growing and increasing," said Green. "The population is increasing. This is something that Boardman has really never had here. They've never had I want to say, kind of a structured rec program."

As far as pricing, they'll offer a membership program. You can get a monthly or a yearly membership, but if that's not for you, you can pay a daily fee.

They're hoping to have their grand opening in the beginning of July, just in time for the holiday weekend.
