By Evie Allen

MARION -- Crews are making progress on a new recreation center in Marion.    

The facility known as the HUB will have a competitive swimming pool, slide, and lazy river. It will also include a gym with a full size basketball and volleyball court, a fitness center, and a track.
Managers say the building will be open to all ages.
"The HUB recreation center will be an activity where families can entertain and enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle," says general manager Martin Holleley.
The HUB is set to open later this fall. The cost of the project is around $13 million.
