NEW PORT RICHEY — The New Port Richey Recreation and Aquatic Center has launched its annual membership drive, offering a 20 percent discount for people buying or renewing their annual memberships.
"Our goal with this membership drive is to showcase the amazing services and amenities available at the recreation and aquatic center, not only to city residents, but to people in the surrounding area as well," said Elaine Smith, the city's parks and recreation director. "The center truly is one of New Port Richey's hidden jewels."
The center at 6630 Van Buren St. has two indoor, full court gymnasiums, a dance studio, a fitness center with cardio and strength-training equipment and a game room.
The aquatic facilities include a heated lap pool, a dive pool with two 1-meter boards, a plunge pool with a two-story water slide and a kiddie pool with spray fountains. Outdoor amenities include tennis courts, basketball courts and a skate park for inline skates and skateboards.
The facility offers a wide range of classes, activities and camps for children.
During the annual membership drive running through Jan. 31, an adult membership is $200, down from $250; and membership for a family of four is $302, down from $378. City residents enjoy additional discounts.
