Lace up those tennis shoes — Springville opened its new Clyde Recreation Center on Thursday, May 24.
Springville began it’s journey for its own recreation in November 2015 when residents approved an $11 million bond to pay in part for the project. The total cost for the project is approximately $23 million. Now less than three years later, Springville has a place to workout, swim and celebrate life events.
Springville’s new recreation center will be open Monday through Saturday from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. Take a photographic tour of the Clyde Recreation Center below.
The gym has a variety of exercise equipment, including treadmills, ellipticals, spin bikes, row machines, stair climbers and more. Plus, there is a variety of weight machines and free weights.
Besides tracking the distance, the spin studio has a heart monitoring system.
The indoor track takes runners around the gym. It takes nine laps in order to run one mile, and the track can hold up to 700,000 pounds.
There are lockers upstairs as well as in a separate locker room by the pool on the first level. The lockers use digital locks.
Besides the spin studio, the Clyde Rec Center has one other room for fitness classes. The rec center offers a variety of classes from yoga to Zumba. When classes aren’t in session, patrons can access video workouts through the television in the fitness studio.
There is one court with six basketball hoops. The court also has volleyball nets for setting up.
The competition pool is set up for training and swim meets. With 10 lanes at 25 yards across, diving boards (including a high-dive), and spectator seating, the pool is ready for swim season.
For those looking for more pool fun than a workout, the activity pool has a kid splash zone (complete with ocean friends), two slides, lazy river, bubble bath bench and a hot tub.
If a parent needs a couple hours so they can exercise, the child watch center has employees to babysit up to 25 children at a time. Children can stay in the watch center for a maximum of two hours. It costs $2 an hour for the first child and $1 per hour for each additional child.
Next to the gym on the second floor, patrons can grab a snack and relax in a designated area.
