The new Deaconess Aquatic Center in Evansville, Indiana, is now officially open to the public.

Swimmers were able to dive in on Monday for the very first time when the Deaconess Aquatic Center held its official opening.

The aquatic center features a splash pad, a diving well, four locker rooms, nearly 1,000 seats for spectators, and more. It also includes a 50-meter competitive pool named after Evansville’s own gold medal Olympian Lily King.

Multiple passes and memberships are available to individuals and families interested in visiting the Deaconess Aquatic Center, with daily passes starting at $6 per person.

Before its opening Monday, a special dedication ceremony was held with city leaders and Evansville native Lilly King present.

The brand new aquatics facility across the street from Garvin Park and Bosse Field is replacing the Lloyd Pool, which was used recreationally and competitively for decades.

You can find the Deaconess Aquatic Center at 1700 N Main St. in Evansville.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some higher amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
