Lakewood Civic Centre houses a spacious tropical pool and waterslide, fitness facilities, meeting and recreational space, and Cliff Wright Branch Library all under one big roof.


Waterslide Repairs Update (December 2014)

The waterslide has been out of commission for the past few months but repairs are on the way:

  • workers will be setting up and preparing to repair the water pumping systems for the waterslide
  • most of the work will go unnoticed because it will be occurring in the pool crawlspaces beneath the pool deck
  • some of the exterior windows will be boarded off to prevent them from being broken

The rest of the facility and pool areas will continue to operate as normal and will remain open for all regularly scheduled activities.  Please be assured that there are no concerns with the safety of the swimming pool and hot tub.

Repairs will begin in mid-December and the construction schedule indicates the waterslide should be up and running
before March 2015.

Customer Feedback Meetings

11 - 11:45 a.m. & 7 - 7:45 p.m.
