A First Look Inside Kerrville's Salvation Army Kroc Center

Late Friday I got a tour of Kerrville's Salvation Army Kroc Center, the fantastic new facility under construction.   It's going to be a real community center one of our guides told me, and I believe him, it will be a place for the whole community.  It's scheduled to open this November.
Here are some photos I took during the tour.

The entry way.  This Kroc Center is the only one
to be built in Texas

This is what you'll see when you walk in the front door.

The entryway lobby.

The Salvation Army is also a church; religious services will be held
in this auditorium.  It's also equipped to show movies, for theatrical
performances, and can be rented for weddings and events.

Two enormous water catchment tanks which will collect rain water from
the center's roof, and also the condensation from the center's
air conditioning system.

Did I mention the center has a fantastic aquatic center?

The giant slide leading to the Kroc Center pool.

Perhaps this slide is more my speed. Yours truly in a hard hat.

The fitness room -- which will have exercise equipment and weights

The Center's gymnasium

The men's locker room

This machine will spin-dry your bathing suit.  Really.  Not kidding.

A classroom -- I think this was a crafts classroom.
