Great news for Daytona Beach residents who need a way to escape the heat. A new public aquatic center has been built on the corner of Nova Road and George W. Engram Blvd. This new "regulation size" pool is the Cypress Aquatic Center, with a 101 swimmer capacity. But this is more than just a pool. This affordable way to spend a day ($3.00 for adults, $2.00 if under 17, children under age 7 must be accompanied by a responsible person over the age of 16.) has locker rooms with showers, family changing rooms, and a covered picnic area which includes availability for party rentals. But that list is just the part the adults and parents will appreciate.

To me, that all sounds like a lot of fun for kids of all ages! And this $1.6 million project was made possible by a $200,000 grant from the Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program, and a $500,000 ECHO grant from Volusia County.
In the future, the city has plans to build a new gymnasium, tennis courts, a baseball field, basketbal courts, a community center and additional parking.
