Tour Our Community and Aquatic Centers

Merriam city employees do a great job making sure the Irene B. French Community Center and the Merriam Aquatic Center look presentable. On the surface, everything looks great – why do we need a new community center and pool? But if you go behind the scenes, you’ll see how much the 100+ and 30+ year-old facilities are deteriorating.

We encourage you to visit our facilities during one of our drop-in tours so you can see for yourself.

Drop-In Building Tours:

Irene B. French Community Center                     Merriam Aquatics Center

Aug. 2 – 5-8 p.m.                                                            July 24 – 5:30-8 p.m.

Aug. 19 – 9 a.m. – Noon                                               Aug. 8 – 5-8 p.m.
