New Aquatic Center at North County Rec Complex Open
The new $5 million aquatics center opened Memorial Day weekend at the North County Recreation Center at Veterans Park located off Redman Road. A sparse crowd was evident when these photos were taken on Memorial Day—perhaps because the weather was not real hot or a lot of folks weren’t aware that it was open. A giant tubular water slide and a lazy river are the major components at the aquatic center, which was built on the site of the Olymphic size swimming pool that occupied the site since the late 1970s.
