SPRINGVILLE — Clyde Companies Inc., an Orem-based construction and insurance holding company, has donated $2 million for upgrades to the city’s new aquatic center, which is currently under construction.
In accepting the donation, the Springville City Council voted to rename the facility the Clyde Recreation Center.
“This donation by Clyde Companies is a way for our business to give back to the city of Springville and the community that has supported our businesses since my grandfather, W.W. Clyde, started here in Springville over 90 years ago,” Mayor Wilford Clyde, the company’s chairman and CEO, said in a statement.
Improvements to the facility, which is scheduled to open at the end of the year, include an outdoor pool, indoor aquatics scoreboard and video display, and public art.
The new $18 million facility is being built directly behind Meadow Brook Elementary, 748 S. 950 West. It will feature multiple pools, including a 10-lane multiuse pool, spa, recreational pool with a current channel, toddler pool, and two slides that will drop swimmers into a "splash down" pool.
