The new Peckham Wellness Center opened Monday at the Harley School in Rochester.
The 5,000 square-foot facility features an improved pool area with energy-efficient windows, new bleachers, more space for teams and spectators and a trophy display.
It also features a multi-purpose room for yoga, dance, and stretching. The project was made possible thanks to a donation by Larry and Nancy Peckham.
Nancy Peckham tells us, “It’s an amazing facelift. I think it’s been exciting for the nursery school kids that are going to use the pool for swim lessons all the way up through the high school. The kids that are competitively swimming, the faculty and staff that get access to the pool now. It’s a wonderful, wonderful brand new space, fresh and clean.”
The $1.5 million wellness center also includes a space for new cardio equipment and weights, as well as newly-renovated locker and team rooms.
