Harrisonville Community Center

Harrisonville will be making some exciting upgrades here at the Community Center, and they want to make sure you are in the know.

These repairs began  on Thursday, August 11.

Over the next few weeks, crews will be replacing the heater for the indoor pool, replacing the sauna and repairing some of the brackets that hold up vents in the pool area.

During this time, the Harrisonville indoor pool area will be closed.

Also during this time, Harrisonville  will allow Community Center members to use the Outdoor Pool during normal pool outdoor pool hours, by scanning their HCC pass.

Until the work is complete, classes and programs that typically take place at the Harrisonville Community Center indoor pool, will be relocated to the lap lanes at the outdoor pool and will be held before the outdoor pool opens for daily swimming.

New morning hours at the outdoor pool (for Community Center members only): Will be

Monday – Friday: 6:30 a.m. to noon

Saturday: 7 a.m. to noon

Sunday: 10 a.m. to noon

The Harrisonville Community Center is  excited for these repairs to be completed and to welcome back members and guests to an improved facility!
