Cd’A Kroc Center Near Completion

Tue 28th Apr 2009 12:00 PM


COEUR D’ALENE -- A $64 million grant made it possible, now the largest community center in the region is taking shape and is near completion. 
Coeur d’Alene is one of a few cities across the country to receive a grant to build the community center. It came from McDonald’s heiress Joan Kroc.
Once complete, the 123,000 square foot building will feature a competition-size pool, theater, chapel, and an indoor track.
Intricate tile work has been completed in many areas including the outdoor adult therapy spa and locker rooms.
Eight suspended basketball hoops and three scoreboards have been installed in the multi-activity court gym, which is now nearing completion. Flooring specialists carefully laid the 13,860 square feet of gym floor.
It took nearly a week to fill the competition-size infinity pool. Workers used a fire hose to put 383,000 gallons of water into the pool.
A dedication ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 9th. The community center will be open to the public that following Monday, kicking off the grand opening day.
The price for membership to the Kroc Center ranges from $28 a month for an adult to $72 a month for a family of 5 or more. A day pass can also be purchased.
