The Cincinnati Recreation Commission’s Mckie Recreation Center is in the process of undergoing extensive renovations. A groundbreaking ceremony was held in October.
McKie, which was dedicated in 1970, will see 2.4 million dollars in improvements that will update the facility from foundation to roof. Amongst the many improvements, the center will become ADA compliant with the addition of elevators and will get updated mechanical systems which will add air conditioning to the gymnasium.
The neighborhood of Northside will also benefit from additional renovations to the adjoining swimming pool. This is slated to take place in at the same time as the center construction and CRC officials are planning on the pool to be ready for the 2012 season.
UPDATE ON RENOVATION
Work continues on the McKie Recreation Center. The McKie Center will get a new interior design as well as a new elevator and windows. As part of the upgraded look, the McKie Family Aquatic Center will have a new sprayground, new pool decks and a new pool filtration system. Work is scheduled to be completed later this year.
