The grand opening of a new facility in Naples focused on swimming and drowning prevention took place Friday (June 29th).
It took $9.2 million to reach this day, which marked the grand opening of the Eagle Lakes Aquatic Center.
Seeing as Florida is second in drowning deaths of children between the ages of 1-14 years-old (according to Florida Health), the focus on drowning prevention is timely.
For now, the aquatic center is free. But in August, it will cost $3.
