Mary Jane Arrington Gym & Aquatic Center Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony
A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place on Saturday, May 13, 2017, to officially open the Mary Jane Arrington Gym & Aquatic Center at Vance Harmon Park in Poinciana. The Center was named after Mrs. Arrington who has devoted her life to community involvement for 45 years. Currently, she is the Supervisor of Elections for Osceola County and also served as the first woman County Commissioner in Osceola County and its first female chair.
The beautiful new facility is about 16,000 square feet. It includes a gym, fitness room, meeting rooms, locker rooms and a warming kitchen. Outside features include a fitness trail around the pond, a multi-use lawn for sports and outdoor activities, an event lawn and an outdoor pavilion. High school swimmers in Poinciana will be able to compete at “home” thanks to the completion of this new facility. The pool has 8-lap lanes that are 25-yards long. There is a 12-foot deep dive well with two boards. The pool can also be set up for water polo.
