The mechanical issues now solved, the City is filling up the pool at the Earl Mah Aquatic Centre in anticipation of Monday's re-opening and to celebrate the Recreation Department is opening the doors to the Aquatic Centre on Monday to free admission for the day.

In addition to the free swim opportunity at the Aquatic Centre, visitors on Monday will also be able to make use the weight room at no cost as well.

As an added thank you for the patience of the public, those that do drop into the Centre on November 3rd will receive a 2 for 1 pass for a future visit.

The free swim session runs all day Monday from 6:30 am to 6:30 PM, with limited use provisions in place.  From 7 to 8:30 the full facility will be available.

As we reviewed back in August, The Earl Mah Aquatic Centre shut down for what was supposed to be routine maintenance, a common occurrence each summer.

However, this year the timeline required an extension, the reopening first anticipated for the third week of September was delayed a number of times, as the city waited for a replacement exhaust fan for the pool complex to be delivered.

The extended shutdown was announced on September 19th, with each passing week since that point making for growing frustration for both the City and those that use the popular recreation facility in the community.

For most though, perhaps all will be forgotten when they dip their toe back in the water Monday, marking the first time since August that the main area echoes with the splash of swimmers hitting water.
