Hospital, swim teams push to reopen aquatics complex pools in Maury County


It’s been nearly two months since the Wellness & Aquatics Complex in Maury County closed but there’s now a new push to reopen the facility’s pools, according to county leaders.

Formerly the Maury County YMCA, the WAC was losing money and could not come up with the funding to stay open. It closed in late April.

Former members said the pools were more than just a place where people exercised. They were a place where local swim teams practiced and competed.

Maury Regional Medical Center also used the indoor pool for aquatic therapy. Since shutting its doors, the hospital has not been able to offer aquatic therapy to its patients.
