Any worries the Big Spring Aquatics Center would lose its allure to area water-seekers after its opening year can be safely placed to rest, as the facility continues to draw capacity-level crowds with the beginning of its second season.
The aquatic center â€” which opened last summer to fill the void left when the municipal swimming pool was shut down because it failed to meet state and federal regulations â€” has opened its 2012 season to much fanfare, according to Assistant City Manager Todd Darden.
