Learn more about proposed aquatics center at Thursday meeting or read FAQs


Nov. 7, 2016 - Hampton has been studying adding a major youth sports facility to serve local residents as well as boost tourism. An aquatics center is being discussed by City Council, and city officials are offering two public sessions for those who want more information. Since the aging Old Hampton Community Center and its pool were closed, the city has considered a replacement pool for community use. With that under consideration, the city commissioned a study to see if it made sense to expand the potential community facility to also be a regional draw to attract swim competitions. Other options include an outdoor fun activity pool. Learn more about the data received so far, ask questions and give suggestions Thursday, Dec. 1, 6:30-8:30 p.m., at the Hampton Performing Arts Center , 300 Butler Farm Rd. (off Magruder Boulevard). This is also the site of one of the city's existing community pools, which will be open for tours.
