LSU recently opened its new outdoor “leisure pool,” part of a nearly $85 million University Recreation expansion.
“Have you taken a dip?” the university tweeted on Saturday in touting its latest aquatic amenity.
The new leisure pool, similar to a lazy river, was built in the shape of “LSU.” It’s 536 feet in length and three-and-a-half feet deep. It also features two bubbler lounges.
The $84.75 million University Recreation expansion and redesign, which broke ground in 2013, also included a sloped jogging trail, new multi-purpose courts, an expanded cardio and weight space, new tennis courts, more parking spots and a challenge course.
The project was funded by student fees.
