Ledecky has family in the Williston area that came out to watch the dedication ceremony. Ledecky was excited to come back to Williston and spend time at the new recreation center.

“It’s great to be here in Williston. It’s just an awesome city, with awesome people. This is a beautiful facility that I can’t wait to see more of and I can’t wait to swim the first lap in honor of my grandpa,” says Olympic gold medalist Katie Ledecky.
