AIKEN CTY., S.C. -- The Family Y of Aiken County broke ground on a $1.3 million outdoor water park Tuesday.

It's part of the new Family Y facility in Graniteville. The water park will include pools, a lazy river and water slides.

Organizers of the new Y say it is long overdue.

"Augusta has had a facility like this for a while, so it is past time that Aiken has a Family Y facility like this and it actually going to be our second largest facility out of nine operations that we currently have," said Danny McConnell, Family Y of Greater Augusta CEO.

The Aiken Y is set to open at the end of the year, but the water park won't be ready until May.
