It is hard to believe that the Midco Aquatic Center has been here for 5 years. I still remember going to the grand opening. Former Mayor Mike Huether invited us to come and it was a blast! Seeing all that the facility has to offer was a real eye-opener!

I also remember the controversy that surrounded its creation and completion. Some Sioux Falls citizens would have preferred keeping the former outdoor Spellerberg Park pool in operation.

But eventually, the political waters calmed, and the indoor aquatic center became a reality.
