The center features two full gymnasiums, a 1/8 mile elevated walking/running track, a fitness center, and community rooms with kitchen.
The gem of the center is a multifaceted aquatic complex that features a four-lane lap pool/wave pool with a moveable floor that drops from zero to six feet. There is a lazy river, fountains and zero-depth wet areas for kids. At the center of the attraction will be a multicolored, and multi-loop 20-foot slide.
Brian Hogan, executive director of the Colonie Youth Center personally tested the slide the night before the ribbon cutting. The Ciccotti center is owned and operated by the Youth Center, a nonprofit organization.
"The Rudy A. Ciccotti Family Recreational Center is wonderful addition to our great town," said Elizabeth DelTorto president of the Colonie Youth Center board of directors in a written statement. "This state of the art facility will provide families, seniors and individuals with a safe and convenient place to refresh their mind and body through one of the most comprehensive family fitness facilities in the Northeast."
The center will be open from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. on weekdays and 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends. The Ciccotti center is located off of 30 Aviation Road. For information, call 436-9596 or visit www.colonieyouthcenter.org.""
