It was noteworthy that Jacques 'n Jills Health Club in El Centro has been sold, but related news is equally exciting. The buyer of the facility is Fred Kim, who leads a group of investors called El Centro Sports Complex LLC. According to Kim, there are some plans for the area around Jacques 'n Jills that could add quite a bit to recreation options for the entire family, and that is good news.
Kim said in a story published Friday that the plans call for building a skate park, a water park and a bowling alley, all forms of recreation much needed in the Imperial Valley. Kim said there is not much family amusement in this area. That point is hard to argue.
We urge Kim and his fellow investors to follow through with their plans. We have seen developers present grandiose plans for local recreational facilities but there has been little movement on any of those projects. We think Kim could see a great deal of profit from the venture.
