The City of Harlingen will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday to reveal renovations at the Lon C. Hill Aquatic Center.

The ceremony will take place at 9:30 a.m., Friday, April 29 at the pool which is located in Fair Park at 605 S. “L” Street.

The project was budgeted for $217,000, and funded via community development block grants.

The pool, originally built in the 1950s, previously was renovated in the 1960s. City officials estimate 3,000 to 4,000 swimmers use the pool each summer.

The renovation included adding new filters, new pump, brand new skimmers, and brand new plumbing line.

New tile was also added around the pool.
