Fenney resort-style pool scores high in survey for new recreation center

Villagers who participated in a recent survey have indicated they would like to see a Fenney resort-style swimming pool at a new recreation center in the northern section of The Villages.

The Amenity Authority Committee will hold a public workshop meeting regarding the new First Responders Recreation Center to be located in the former First Baptist Church in Community Development District 4.

This meeting will be held at 9 a.m. Wednesday, July 24 at Savannah Center.

The resident survey that was conducted in January/February garnered about 2,800 responses.

A majority of respondents said they would like to see a Fenney resort-style pool with a wide deck, a walk/roll-in water entrance, bench seating in the water and a waterfall.

Also scoring high in the survey were an indoor pool and a Jacuzzi hot tub.
