In July 2019, city council voted 6-0 to authorize up to $25 million in capital improvement bonds with the intent to transform the former Harrison High School building into a community center and fine arts facility. The main goals for the project were to maintain and upgrade desirable, existing sport and gym amenities, create new features missing from the community, such as a recreation pool, and preserve the legacy of the now-retired high school.
The new aquatic center is designed within the old natatorium replacing the original 25-yard lap pool and deep water pool. New program offerings include swim lessons, open swim times, and lifeguard/CPR training. The natatorium also has access to a party space for rentals on the second level where patrons can access the pools from the waterslide tower.
