Harry Bailey Aquatic Centre Upgrade & Facility Closure

Last Updated September 26 - Harry Bailey Aquatic Centre is scheduled to undergo a major upgrade and facility closure.  The facility will be open to the public until December 1.  This date is subject to change based on the final construction schedule, which will be determined in consultation with the successful contractor.

This project is expected to take approximately 18 months to complete and will include replacement of the 50-metre pool basin, water treatment system and a portion of the roof, as well as upgrades to the building's mechanical system, insulation and vapour barrier; all of which are nearing the end of their functional life. Improvements regarding accessibility and inclusivity are also being explored to ensure the building and its features will be a welcoming space for the entire community.

Harry Bailey Aquatic Centre has provided 46 years of service to the community and this renovation will give the facility another 40 years of use.
