FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Marshfield Outdoor Aquatic Center (MOAC) Groundbreaking Ceremony
Tuesday, June 23 2020 - A monumental moment for Marshfield will take place at the site of Hefko Pool Wednesday, July 8, 2020 to mark the start of construction for the $6-million outdoor
aquatic center with a groundbreaking ceremony.

The Parks and Recreation Department staff are organizing the event along with the aquatic center
campaign committee members, dignitaries such as the mayor, city administrator and other community leaders. The event will begin at noon on July 8, on the Hefko Pool site with a small presentation and light refreshments.

"We're grateful for this opportunity and thank all the donors who are supporting this project. We
couldn't be more pleased with the generous donors and the Council for providing their support,"
said Justin Casperson Parks and Recreation Director.

Bids for construction of the aquatic center are in the works with a possible start later this year to
begin the first phase of the project with plans of possibly opening the facility for the 2021 summer
season.

The multi-million-dollar facility will have many amenities, including three slides, two diving boards,
a climbing wall, basketball hoops, a full concession stand, family changing rooms, private changing
stalls, a reservable shelter, a party room, a current channel, a grass area, shade structures and
plenty of lounge chairs.
