The citizens of Greenville celebrated the grand opening of their newe Greenville Aquatic Center and the renovation of the Eppes Recreation Center in June 2022. The pool is located adjacent to Eppes Recreation Center in Thomas Foreman Park.
Replacing the city’s 49-year-old community pool, the new Greenville Aquatic Center is a 165,000-gallon outdoor pool with six competition-style lap lanes, a shallow area suitable for children, and a 16-foot slide. Additionally, there is a new 4,000 sq. ft. bath house, restrooms for public use, a storage facility for staff, and an office check-in area at the $4 million facility.
Two million dollars in improvements were made to the recreation center, including a 1,750-square-foot addition, enhanced visibility and access at the front entrance, updates to the Police Athletic League after-school rooms, the addition of a teen lounge, and upgrades to the C.M. Eppes Cultural and Heritage Center.
