A far westside family center is getting a new look. Improvements have begun on the Krannert Park Family Center as part of Mayor Joe Hogsett’s $45 million Circle City Forward Initiative.

Indy Parks Chief of Communications Ronetta Spalding says residents who enjoy the activities and take classes at the center will like the changes. 

“We are going to completely revamp the family center, which has been there for more than 50 years. It's going to look and function completely new and just be a great addition to that park”

One activity at the center regularly used in the summer will be available during the cooler months. 

“We are taking two existing pools and transforming them into a larger, year-round pool,” Spalding said. “For the past several years, we've had the indoor pool and outdoor pool, and they had to be closed just due to maintenance issues and so we're really excited to be able to roll out a pool that folks can enjoy year-round.”

The park closed in May as work on $7 million makeover began. The project is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2023.
