The ribbon is cut and the gates are open to the new Phenix City Youth Sports Complex.
Kids spent the warm summer day enjoying the 142 foot long water slide as well as splashing around the 108,000 gallon swimming pool.
The complex also features basketball and tennis courts and a full sized soccer field. There is also a concession facility and party room inside. It is located adjacent to the newly renovated Phenix City Youth Center.
"This is not a north Columbus pool. This is not a west Phenix City pool. This is not a east Phenix City pool. This is one pool for all citizens of Phenix City and the youth of Phenix City. This will have an impact on the youth here in Phenix City, and we're excited about that. There are more things coming, and we will continue to work hard to keep Phenix City moving forward."
The youth sports complex is open from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Monday.
Admission is $3 per person.
