SRPMIC Leaders Tour New Way of Life Facility
One of the newest and largest structures under construction in the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community is the Way of Life Facility (WOLF). Members of the SRPMIC Council toured the nearly complete multi-level facility on May 11.
The WOLF is located in the central part of the Community, along Indian School Road just east of Center Street. It will offer physical and leisure activities for Community members of all ages, with a swimming pool, skate park, basketball courts, a walking track and more.
The tour began with a review of the site features at the skate park, which has multiple uses and functions, such as an amphitheater.
The tour continued inside, where the visitors got a look at the three-basketball-court gym, the indoor running track above the courts, and the special light fixtures. On sunny days, the gym will take advantage of natural light instead of using houselights.
The next stop included the party room and the natatorium (indoor swimming pool). Staff explained what Council members were looking at from the building, as construction crews were digging into the ground outside, building the lap pool, lazy river and spa areas.
The tour moved upstairs, where Council members could see the area outside where Little League field will be. Inside, they toured the fitness center space, which includes aerobics and spinning rooms. They also toured the space that will house the Recreation Department, the Youth Services Department, the Boys and Girls Club-Red Mountain Branch and an area for activities for Community seniors.
Many members of the Council left impressed. The tour lasted about 90 minutes.
Substantial completion of construction is expected in December, and the WOLF should be fully operational by early 2018.
