Aquaplex renovation on schedule
Work is progressing well on the new indoor pool and the opening date is still planned for November 1, 2017.
“To minimize the impact of the pool closure we are keeping the outdoor pool open as long as possible. Closure will be determined by the weather; which is looking good over the next 10 days at least,” explained Paul Salvatore Director of Community Services, “we are currently managing to keep the water temperature at 83 degrees Fahrenheit which is a great temperature for swimming.”
Town of Drumheller will extend the length of Aquaplex memberships by the length of the closure. “We feel that it is important to make sure that our members are given fair value in recognition of the inconvenience that the closure of the indoor pool will cause regular users. We have always tried to minimize the impact on our users as we encourage an active and healthy lifestyle,” says Mayor Terry Yemen.
The Drumheller Aquaplex originally opened in 1975 and 42 years later, there have been various upgrades. The 2017 Modernization is by far the most extensive update of the facility.
The newly modernized Aquaplex will feature a gradual entry pool basin, new hot-tub and steam room in addition to fresh new floors and surfaces. These improvements will help to reduce maintenance costs in addition to improving the overall aquatics experience.
The Drumheller Aquaplex is on schedule to be open on November 1.
