SCRANTON— The Jewish Community Center of Scranton (JCC) reopened its pool after a $1.4 million improvement project of its aquatic center. The seven-month project revitalized the pool and its 60-year old mechanical and lighting system.

Enhancements include a complete pool renovation, extensive improvements to the inside observation deck, a modern electric filtration and HVAC system, expanded pool seating capacity and new windows. Additionally, the renovation project enabled the entire aquatic center to be handicap accessible.

The new pool at the JCC enables children and adults of all ages to enjoy expanded learn to swim classes and water exercise classes, including Aqua Zumba. The JCC offers expanded membership opportunities for families and individuals and seniors. JCC members can also benefit from a 4,000 square foot state of the art fitness center, racquetball courts, early learning center that has pre-school and child care programs, and a variety of recreational activities for children and adults.
