 Mission & History

Cascade Aquatic & Rec Center History
After years of fund-raising by the Swimming Pool Association in Cascade, the Southern Valley County Recreation District was formed for the purpose of collecting a fee each year from property taxes in order to raise enough money to build a year-round swimming pool and recreation center. Since 1999, other recreation programs have been established with varying degrees of success. The District purchased 4 acres from the old Boise Cascade Mill Site. The land purchased had access to 100 degree geothermal water. Today there is a continuing capital campaign to complete the finishing touches of the Cascade Aquatic and Recreation Center.
