Terrace pool cited for excellence — again

Mountlake Terrace’s Pavilion Aquatics Program has won another award.

The National Recreation and Parks Association awarded the center its Excellence in Aquatics Award for cities with populations of 20,000 to 50,000.

Last year, the pool, which was remodeled in 2003, was named “Best Family Indoor Aquatics Center” by Aquatics International, a publication distributed to aquatics facilities and program managers around the world.

Don Sarcletti, recreation and parks department director, said, “This recognition is reflective of our excellent facilities, programs and staff that provide recreation services to our community.”
