Public Invited To Aquaplex Groundbreaking Ceremony

HAMPTON—The groundbreaking ceremony for the Hampton Virginia Aquaplex will be held Wednesday, July 14 at 10am on-site at the new center, located at 1908 Coliseum Drive. Hampton Mayor Donnie Tuck, along with other Hampton stakeholders, will speak at the ceremony about the Aquaplex and its benefits to the community.

The ceremony is free and open to the public. Public parking and a shuttle will be available at the Hampton Coliseum parking lot. Closed-toe shoes are recommended within the construction site. Masks are required at this event for those who have not yet been fully vaccinated, and some amount of socially distanced seating will be available.

The Hampton Virginia Aquaplex, Virginia’s largest competitive aquatic facility, is slated to open in Summer 2022.

The Aquaplex will also accommodate local school swim teams and citizens with a 50-meter competition pool and 25-meter program pool.
