Henrico County, YMCA to build 20,000-square-foot aquatics center


Henrico County announced Tuesday that it will build the Henrico Aquatics Center, a 20,000-square-foot indoor swimming facility.

The facility will have a 25-yard pool with 8 lanes, a warm-water instructional pool with zero-depth entry, a waterslide, and a family spray area. There will also be family-friendly locker rooms, retractable spectator seating and parking. The facility will have means-based membership rates as well as daily rates.

“The Henrico Aquatics Center will be a game changer for youth and families,” County Manager John Vithoulkas said. “In addition to family swim times, the facility will offer swimming lessons, host practices and meets for our high school swim teams and get plenty of use by Henrico’s youth summer camps and community groups like the Police Athletic League.”
