The new Springville Recreation Center has finally begun installing it’s HVAC, albeit a bit slower than projected. With plumbing, electric, and heating and cooling systems being put into place this mammoth structure is finally taking shape. The building proper name will be the Clyde Recreation Center, thanks to a generous donation from Clyde Companies, whose chair and CEO is Springville’s mayor, Wilford Clyde.

Clyde Recreation CenterWith a budget of $23 Million, this has been one of the biggest public projects in the lower valley has seen in recent years. The 64,000 square foot building is twice the size of the Springville community pool and will include a multi-use pool, water slides, a hot tub, and locker rooms on its first floor, including a gymnasium. The second story boasts even more facilities, including a cardio room, and an overwatch protected by glass barriers to keep the dry areas separate from the wet. Another contribution from the Clyde company will be a juice bar on the second floor and several glass features in the building. As the Clyde center will be serving a city famous for its art, many find it fitting.

As Mrs. Anna Wardle said in a video on Springville Family Aquatic Center on Facebook, ‘We need it.’ referring to a younger generation of kids who could use the new center boost their physical activity. As Herold Davis also said, ‘We’re putting hundred’s of thousands of dollars of repairs just to keep the (old) pool going.’ As a member of the Parks and Recreation board, we compare buying a new car, compared to trying to repair a sixty year old one. As a city, it is clear that Springville is excited and conscientious about the new Rec Center.

With a tentative finishing date in late May 2018, it could potentially to be open to the public this summer. Even though the building’s opening is still a ways off, memberships can be purchased immediately, these permitting free access to the Springville community pool until the Rec center is complete.
