BY JOE GONZALES

The City of Littlefield is still hard at work with its plans to build the QUAD, Littlefield Aquatic Center.

The Littlefield Quad is a 4- phase project that, when completed, will provide the community with a complex offering year-round access to swimming pools, parks, and a community center.

The QUAD center will be located at West 15th Street and Phelps Ave., in between the First United Methodist Church and Prosperity Bank. The project will be centered on a five-acre parcel of land.

City officials hope the center will provide a place for recreational activities for its citizens and surrounding communities.
