Recreation and Swim Complex - Reopening Tuesday, February 7th 

(Updated 02/03/23)

Dear Patrons,

We are pleased to announce the reopening of the Recreation and Swim Complex pool, locker rooms, weight room, and gymnasium on Tuesday, February 7th. Facilities Maintenance has successfully completed a temporary repair of the heating system to allow operations to resume. We do anticipate additional maintenance and repairs to the heating system that could result in intermittent closures through the month of February. This heating system has reached its functional lifespan and there is a likelihood that additional operational impacts may occur. We will continue to provide updates to you through our voicemail, website, email, social media, etc. Please see the posted schedule and operating hours listed below.

Sincerely,

Your Recreation Services Team
