The 75,000 sq. ft. Stivers Aquatic Center was designed as a recreational, service, study and learning center. The center was named for state Senator Robert Stivers II, the Senate Republican leader who represents the area and helped secure millions in state funding.
The Center offers a variety of wellness programs for all ages, including an aquatics program targeting area youth. The Center is anticipated to serve several thousand people annually throughout counties contiguous to Knox County, Kentucky.
