A special groundbreaking ceremony was held for the Reinvest New Ulm (RENU) Recreation Center Project, Wednesday. The Rec Center project was the largest of the RENU projects approved by voters during a special referendum in 2016. The project includes a new pool area with zero-depth entry and water park amenities, a new strength and wellness center, new entry and an indoor playground. The project with all alternate add-ons costs $11.567 million. The construction project is expected to be complete next year.
