Online PR News – 01-August-2012 – Oakville, ON – Oakville, ON, August 01, 2012 -- The successful collaboration of the City of Bolivar, Missouri and the Roy Blunt YMCA results in a brand new state-of-the-art Aquatic Center that officially opened its doors – and its roof – on Saturday, June 30th. Complete with an OpenAire retractable roof enclosure, the facility will serve as a beacon to the community and help to increase YMCA membership locally and from neighboring municipalities.
The new facility boasts a retractable roof enclosure, designed, manufactured and installed by OpenAire Inc., of Oakville, Ontario. The stunning 110’ (33.5m) x 171’ (52.12m) enclosure covers the aquatic area with two new indoor pools; a lap pool and a leisure pool. The roof is 43’ (13.1m) high at the ridge and opens up to 45%.

“The OpenAire retractable roof has tremendous user appeal and naturally draws people to the facility,” says Chad Jansen, executive director, Bolivar YMCA. “As an operator of the facility, it is great to see the shade and sun combinations when the roof is open.”
The City of Bolivar is no longer faced with an out-of-date aquatic center; rather, it’s now the home to a cutting-edge new aquatic center as part of a “wellness campus” including the existing public library, seniors’ center, seniors’ health center, and leisure pool.
“The most exciting thing right now is the steady increase in visitors and membership growth. We are growing at a nice steady rate in new membership joins and patron usage. That satisfaction level is tremendous and is quite refreshing to see and experience,” added Jansen.
