SHARE Aquatics center opens with splash

A free water aerobics class, above, helps welcome the new Fairmont Aquatics Center Saturday. Right, Rebecca Enke, 4, of Sugar House, plays under the "teacup" in the leisure pool of the center, which is celebrating its grand opening this weekend after years of anticipation. The $6 million facility at 1044 E. Sugarmont Drive (2225 South) includes an eight-lane competitive lap pool and a 150-foot water slide. The facility, open from 10 a.m. to 4:30 today with free admission, was funded by the Zoo Arts and Parks tax.
