Col J.J. Parr leisure pool remains closed for maintenance and research

Col J.J. Parr Sports Centre aquatic leisure pool will remain closed for additional planning and research in regards to maintenance repairs.

In a Public Service Announcement, 4 Wing said that an on-site survey was conducted by consultants in December 2019 to explore options with the goal of determining a viable and long term solution for the pool.

The extended closure is due to the replacement of the leisure pool liner and additional mechanical system repairs and upgrades.

They say updates will be made when improvement work will be finished to re-open the aquatic leisure pool.

For now, phase one of planning and research is near complete.

4 Wing apologizes for the delays and appreciates the public’s support in making improvements.
