The W.O.L.F. Update

The WOLF’s indoor pool with water slide, lazy river and splash pad is just about complete.

The new 120,000-square-foot Way of Life Facility (WOLF) is on schedule to be completed soon. Currently, workers are installing flooring and moving in new furniture, desks and countertops.

The WOLF is located in the central part of the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, along Indian School Road just east of Center Street. It will offer physical and leisure activities for Community members of all ages.

In December, the facility will be substantially completed and ready for staff from different government departments, including Public Works, the Diabetes Prevention Program, the Recreation Department and the Senior Center. Also happening around this time will be the relocation of the Youth Services Department, the Boys and Girls Club Red Mountain Branch and the Salt River Tribal Library.

The WOLF’s three basketball courts and second story in-door track which is in complete with flooring.
In the basketball court, the flooring has been laid down and final striping and coating is taking place. The flooring for the indoor track on the second floor is done. New equipment for the WOLF fitness center is expected to arrive in the coming weeks. The swimming pool and slides are finished, along with 140,000 gallons of water flowing.

Outside, the skate park and multi-purpose sports fields, including a Little League baseball field, are just about finished.

The date for the grand opening is still being discussed; more than likely it will be sometime in early 2018.
