KINGSPORT, Tenn. -

The Kingsport Aquatic Center has hit a milestone just a little more than a month after the grand opening.

News 5 has learned the center has hosted more than 50,000 visitors.

The facility opened May 17. In June, the Aquatic Center averaged 1,200 guests a day. 

As of July 1, the center has signed on more than 1,600 members, which includes both season passes and annual memberships.

The facility has added on several new parking spaces because of the growing popularity.

Kingsport city officials say they are thrilled with the support the Aquatic Center has received from the community.
