Harbour Pool remains open for business as usual while construction of a new universal change room continues.
Work on the new addition started at the beginning of August, mainly on the outside of the building. According to aquatic operations supervisor Kayla Dow, interior work won’t get underway until later this year. The project should wrap up by spring 2019.
Dow said the new change room will modernize the pool and allow it to be more inclusive to the public.
“Specifically for residents who require assistance changing or have accessibility needs or for families who have older children who require assistance from a parent caregiver, or residents who require a gender neutral change area.”
The pool was briefly closed for construction purposes Thursday night and early Friday morning. The building will close again on December 1 as the final stages of the work continue. It will reopen to the public again on February 1.
