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.
