The Town of Plainfield proudly announces the 20th anniversary celebration of the Richard A. Carlucci Recreation & Aquatic Center, marking two decades of fostering community health and recreation since its opening in 2004.


The Richard A. Carlucci Recreation & Aquatic Center has played a pivotal role in enhancing the quality of life for Plainfield residents, becoming a cornerstone of community wellness and a testament to the town's commitment to providing top-notch recreational facilities.


"It's remarkable to reflect on the impact the Richard A. Carlucci Recreation & Aquatic Center has had on our community over the past two decades,” said Town of Plainfield Town Council President, Robin Brandgard. “From fostering wellness to building lasting connections, this facility has become a cornerstone of our town's identity. As we celebrate 20 years, we look forward to continuing our commitment to providing exceptional recreational experiences for the Plainfield community."


To commemorate this significant milestone, the Town of Plainfield has planned a series of celebratory events throughout the year, aiming to engage the community and express gratitude for the two decades of support. One of the highlights includes the creation of a vibrant community mural. Each month, on the 20th, residents will have the unique opportunity to contribute by painting a section of the mural at the Richard A. Carlucci Recreation & Aquatic Center. This collaborative art project symbolizes the unity and shared experiences of the Plainfield community.


In addition to the anniversary celebrations, the Plainfield Parks & Recreation Department is thrilled to announce several enhancements to further elevate the recreation experience for residents and visitors. This includes ribbon-cutting ceremonies for the much-anticipated Franklin Park and the renowned Splash Island. Furthermore, the department will introduce two new adult body slides, a splash pad, and rentable tiki huts at the Richard A. Carlucci Recreation & Aquatic Center. These additions aim to continue making Splash Island a regional destination, offering unparalleled recreational opportunities for families.


As Plainfield looks ahead to the next chapter, the Town is committed to maintaining and enhancing the Carlucci Recreation & Aquatic Center, ensuring it remains a hub of community engagement, health, and well-being.
