LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Mary T. Meagher Aquatic Center is now open on Sundays, starting today.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer says it's part of his emphasis on making Louisville a healthier city.

The center in Crescent Hill Park will be open today from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m.

The Aquatic Center had been closed on Sundays since 2008, when budgetary conditions forced Metro Government to make various cuts to city services.

Lap swims, water exercise and swim lessons are offered at the center, along with a weight room with cardio equipment.
