SILER CITY — Siler City Parks and Recreation is excited to “jump in” to another season at the Bray Park Aquatic Facility in Siler City.

The facility opened last year following a $1 million renovation project which added a zero-entry area, splash pad and updated facilities. The renovation was funded in part by a PARTF grant and a capital fundraising campaign.

Updates for the 2019 season at the Aquatic Center, located at 700 Alston Bridge Rd., include new lounge chairs, picnic tables, swim lessons, and an Arthritis Aquatic Program operated in conjunction with Chatham County Council on Aging.

On Monday, the Aquatic Center expanded to its full-time summer hours. The entry fee is $5 for those ages 3 and over. There are also season passes available. A new $2.50 Tuesday event features half-price entrance fees every Tuesday during the summer.

“Siler City Parks and Recreation seeks to provide the community with a high quality and safe aquatic facility that offers exceptional opportunities to recreate, relax, increase health and wellness, and to help create lasting memories for generations to come,” said Daniel Spivey, the department’s administrative support specialist.
