Facility Info

Our mission

The mission of Larson Lifestyle Center is to provide a fitness and aquatic facility with courteous, dependable and knowledgeable assistance for the improved health of our patrons, all for the glory of God.

History

The plans and financing of the Larson Lifestyle Center were voted on in January 1977. Architect Larry Enersen of Clark & Enersen was hired in January and the finances were approved in February of that year.

A construction contractor was hired and construction began in May of 1978. Construction was projected to be completed September 1979. In the summer of 1981, the pool opened for student use as well as for community swimming lessons.

In May 1981, the Union College Health Complex became officially known as the Larson Lifestyle Center, named after a physician by the name of Dr. Ernest Larson, who gave generously for the completion of the complex.
