Aquatic Center Opening Update - March 21st, 2022

The Student Aquatic Center pools are currently closed for renovation. Funding for the project has been approved and we are awaiting contractors to begin the work. The project will be completed in 2 phases. Phase one will include the re-surfacing of the Margret McMillan Lap Pool. Phase 2 will include re-surfacing the Leisure Pool and the Spa. All pools will also have the pool lights replaced with new LED systems. This work is necessary in order for us to keep our 20 year old facility in first class shape. As soon as we have a timeline for completion we will put updates on our social media and website. Thank you for your patience as we make these improvements.
