Renovation approved for Bogan Aquatic Center

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- A major renovation of the Bogan Park Aquatic Center was approved by the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday.

A Gwinnett County official said the 15-year-old park will get new roof panels, new HVAC and filtration systems, and locker room improvements which will boost operational and energy efficiencies.

Along with two indoor swimming pools, a competition pool and a family leisure pool, the center also includes opportunities for swimming lessons, areas to swim laps, a water playground, lazy river and water slide.

As Gwinnett County reported, funds for the renovation work come from a 2005 SPLOST program. Bryson Construction Inc. received $3.15 million to use towards plans for the facility. The work will begin when the center closes in February, and is expected to be completed in September.

All pool pass holders will be able to enjoy other aquatic centers in the area, including Bethesda Park, Collins Hill Park, Mountain Park and West Gwinnett Park.
