Murfreesboro’s SportsCom opened June, 1987, and WGNS Radio was there!  Note the absence of the Irongate Center across Memorial Blvd.  Memorial Blvd. was a two-lane highway in 1987; Irongate came along c2000.

June, 1987: Joe B. Jackson was Murfreesboro Mayor; E.C. Fite, Jr. was City manager and such as John Pittard and Mary Hutta were on the City Council.

The pool started as a simple Olympic sized pool with two diving boards.  Jumping ahead to today, it is now a real waterpark with waterslides, a rock climbing wall in the pool and a high dive and low dive. The pool also has an obstacle course in the shallow end!
