Construction is underway for Sedalia’s new 92,000 sq. ft. Heckart Community Center. The aquatic center will be equipped with a zero-depth entry pool, a water slide, lazy river, lap lanes, diving boards, and an eight-lane competition pool. The community center will include a multipurpose gymnasium, a child watch area, party rooms, a commercial kitchen, administration offices, a senior center, community rooms, and a mezzanine complete with a fitness center, aerobics studio, and an elevated track.
The new facility is being built upon the former site of the Jennie Jaynes Stadium, and is expected to draw guests from surrounding counties and the nearby Whiteman Airforce Base.
