July 6, 2018

Cranbrook, BC (July 6, 2018) – The pool at Western Financial Place will remain closed for an additional week, following equipment delivery delays for one of the major projects scheduled as part of the annual maintenance program.  The aquatic centre will now reopen as usual on Monday July 16.

Issues around the delivery of the new LED fixtures for the aquatic centre is the cause of the delay.  Other projects part of the maintenance program included replacement of the HVAC duct system and renovating the waterslide stairs.  The annual maintenance program also included: mechanical service work and system inspections, tile grouting and broken tile repairs, deep scrubbing and cleaning and some painting and touch up work.

It is also important to note that the entire facility including the arena for concourse walking will remain closed on the July 14 weekend.  Concourse walking will be available Monday to Friday between 7:30am and 6:00pm during the closure.

The City of Cranbrook apologizes for any inconvenience this delay has caused.  We look forward to being back up and running very soon.
