The City of Homewood, Alabama recognized that their aging Community Center was no longer able to meet their needs for swimming, sports, and fitness. To meet their needs, the New Community Center will feature two full-size gyms surrounded by an elevated running track, two large fitness rooms for programmed activities such as aerobics or Zumba, and a large weight and cardio exercise area with all new equipment. The facility will also include a large Multi-Purpose space that can serve as a community meeting space for 100 people, as another fitness room, or for hosting their popular summer camp programs. Another key component of the facility is a new community pool, with a 25-yard competition pool, an instructional / leisure pool with a vortex at one end, and a separate zero-entry kids’ wading pool with sprinklers and a free-standing play structure. The Pool is a distinctly separate and secure area from the rest of the Community Center, with a dedicated birthday party room, a full-service concessions stand, and a covered outdoor dining area. The new Homewood Community Center is anticipated to be complete by March 2014.
