MERIDIAN — The long-awaited indoor aquatic center at the South Meridian Family YMCA is nearing completion and will open its doors to the public on July 1. The grand opening will also feature the facility’s THRIVE Center, which provides a safe and inclusive space for the Treasure Valley’s neurodiverse families.

The aquatic center features state-of-the-art equipment designed to improve water quality and energy efficiency and will address a local shortage of space for swim lessons and local swim teams to practice and hold meets, said Mike Kapuscinski, executive director of the South Meridian Family YMCA.
