The Shindleman Aquatic Centre must close this fall due to structural safety concerns. A recent building assessment has revealed structural components of the roof in the pool area are deteriorating and must be replaced. While the structure is currently safe, its integrity cannot be assured under a snow load.
Since the safety of our patrons is our highest priority, the pool will close during the upcoming snow season. We expect to close on October 31, although an early snow may advance that date.  Read our News Release.   Read Questions and Answers.
We understand this will be disappointing and inconvenient to pool users, and we hope to soon announce alternative aquatic programming at other venues.

Thank-you for your understanding while we work to improve this important community facility.

If you have questions in the meantime, contact us.
