$2.5 million project opens in Belle Plaine

BELLE PLAINE (KWWL) -- Belle Plaine held the grand opening for a new $2.5 million facility Saturday.

The new aquatic center is located in Franklin Park.

Pool manager Anna Upah says there was a need for a new facility because the old pool was 50 years old.

"This is a great investment for this city.  We've sold more season passes today than I think we did the entire summer last year," Upah said.

In addition to the extra income, Upah said that they were also able to hire more staff for the pool.
