Lauderhill’s Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for the Aquatic Complex at John Mullin Park

The City of Lauderhill Mayor and Elected Officials are proud to open the doors to the newly constructed Aquatic Complex at John Mullin Park (2000 NW 55 Avenue) on Thursday, January 19th at 10 am.

The new Aquatic Complex was built on the former City Hall site which was damaged beyond repair after Hurricane Wilma in 2005. The Old Florida Tropical style 4,000 square foot facility is surrounded by lush landscaping and is beautifully adorned with two public art projects using artistic flooring surfaces. One of which is made from recyclable materials. You must see this!

The Complex paid for in part by $75,000 grant dollars includes multi-purpose meeting/class rooms, bath/locker rooms, and a concession area. All the lighting and cooling fixtures are energy efficient while the plumbing fittings are low flow for water conservation. The facility meets the LEED Silver standards and is cheerfully painted and decorated with a wavy water theme!

The new 25 meter swimming pool includes eight lanes for competition and is both heated and cooled. The pool deck is large and can host swim meets. The “Funbrella” splash feature completes the pool deck to appeal and attract residents of all ages, and the entire area overlooks a fantastic lake.

“The Lauderhill Central Residents’ Association will finally have a neighborhood facility to host monthly meetings and social gatherings. Having a recreation center and swimming pool in our community is essential for happy and healthy families,” states Beryl Collins, Lauderhill Central Residents’ Association President.

The Aquatic Complex is located at John Mullin Park which includes tennis courts, a multi-purpose field, basketball and racquetball courts, pavilions, a walking path and parking. The Boys and Girls Club is also located in this Park.

Join us in opening the doors to this new fantastic facility. We will have a brief program on Thursday, January 19th at 10 am….pool side followed by refreshments.
