Aquatic yoga and underwater spin-cycle classes will be offered
Collier County Parks & Recreation is wrapping up construction on a $9.2 million aquatics facility at Eagle Lakes Community Park.
The county expects the project to be completed by early summer 2018.
“One of the unique things about this facility is that it will have an underwater spin class,” said Daniel Christenbury, a Collier County public information coordinator. Visitors will also have an option to take an aquatic yoga class.
The facility will focus on swimming and drowning prevention. According to FloridaHealth.gov , Florida comes in second in drowning deaths of children between the ages of 1 to 14 years-old. Currently, Oklahoma holds the number one spot.
The new aquatic center will have a 25-meter lap pool where swimming enthusiast will be able to train and compete. There’s also room for non-competitive swimmers at the family pool.
