This Saturday the Monon Center outdoor aquatics center opens for the season, and senior Ella Raymont said that she loves the Monon Center and is excited for another year.

Raymont said she is definitely going to the season opening of the outdoor aquatics center. “I went last year, and it was so packed. I actually had to leave and come back a couple hours later because I couldn’t find parking,” Raymont said. “It’s really fun, just crawling with people.”

According to Lindsay Holajter, marketing coordinator for Carmel Clay Parks and Recreation (CCPR), the celebration has a pirate theme.

“It’s an aquatics special event, and following that we’ll have the one-year celebration,” Holajter said.

Besides the opening, a large variety of programs for the summer are open for registration, including camps, classes and fitness programs. Raymont said she recommends the Flick’n’Floats, which are movies shown over the outdoor aquatics center.

Raymont said, “(CCPR has) a lot of stuff going on over the summer. It’s perfect for everybody.”
