Aquatic and Community Center Project

Picture 3 of construction on the aquatic center property dated 10.4.22Fall is in the air.  Leaves turning colors and falling to the ground signify change is coming.  That same ground amassing piles of leaves is the start of the new, developing aquatic and community center site.  The site’s construction is quickly materializing, becoming a splendid visual locale for a destination that will emerge as the hub for the City of Mayfield Heights. For the last five months, the A.M. Higley Co. has made its base at the Marsol Road site with daily workers excavating and installing stormwater retention structures, sanitary piping, and water and electric lines.  The underground work is nearly completed and allows the crew to turn their attention towards the pump pit and surge tanks for the new pool, followed by foundation work for the pool and community center.

Driving by the site, the almost complete service yard adjacent to the aquatic and community center is noticeable.  This newly added portion of the Service Department is part of the overall project. The service yard is scheduled to be ready in time for fall leaf collection.  To help conceal this area, a buffer was added and will be flanked with trees and a fence to divide the service yard from the aquatic and community center. Currently, the entire site on Marsol Road is being prepped for the winter season, where continued development will be seen in the coming months in preparation for the opening in the summer of 2023.

Action Was Promised - Action is Being Delivered

Action Was Promised - Action is Being Delivered

By: Sean Ward, Director of Parks & Recreation

Thanks to the easygoing late fall weather, the construction crew has been ramping up activity, trying mightily to get as much done before the real snow begins to fall.   Some might say this Herculean effort is a small Yuletide miracle.

Those who drive past the project daily can attest to noticeable additions to the site. Whereas all the prior work was being done on things that go underground, things are now materializing in full view, pinpointing actual spots that coincide with the renderings. 

The most noticeable action is the gymnasium. The gymnasium can be noticed from all four directions, including a spectacular view from I-271. All four walls are up. Asphalt is poured around the building. The water detention pond is all dug out. The crane is out of the building, the steel has been shipped, and the concrete is about to be poured.  

In addition to the gymnasium, both pools have been dug, formed, and will be ready to pour.  

The parking lot has been asphalted around the curbs and islands.   The Service yard is getting some final touches. The footers for the community center and offices have been laid, making a complete layout viewable.  

Action is happening, and it is as exciting to watch as it is waiting for presents on Christmas morning. As the days get shorter and there is less daylight to utilize, the hope is that more will take shape. Perhaps Santa will be able to see the wonderful progress as he passes over our ever-changing city. Check out the updated pictures HERE.
