5. Ex­tended clo­sure for Car­bon­ear pool

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

Users of the Car­bon­ear Swim­ming Pool were fi­nally able to get back into the water in late June fol­low­ing a pro­longed clo­sure of the re­gional fa­cil­ity.

The build­ing was closed in mid- Jan­uary for an ex­ten­sive up­grade to the heat­ing, ven­ti­la­tion and air con­di­tion­ing (HVAC) sys­tem. Of­fi­cials ini­tially stated the pool would re­open in March, but the $1 mil­lion project was plagued by de­lays, and the doors weren’t re­opened un­til June 22.

The 37-year-old fa­cil­ity at­tracts an es­ti­mated 35,000 vis­i­ta­tions an­nu­ally.

Rob But­ton is re­cre­ation and tourism di­rec­tor for the Town of Car­bon­ear. He is pic­tured here at the of­fi­cial re­open­ing of the swim­ming pool in late July.
