Kimberley Aquatic Centre to Fully Reopen Tuesday, February 20th


Kids participating in day camp on Tuesday will be the first to jump into the Kimberley Aquatic Centre’s leisure pool after months of shut-down due to leak repairs. Other facility upgrades were also successfully completed on time, and as of Tuesday, all amenities will reopen, including the lap pool, hot tub, and steam room.

This concludes necessary efficiency upgrades to the pool, including replacing the pool filtration system, upgrading the heat exchange and water distribution systems, and installing new boilers. During the first pool shutdown in the fall, a significant leak was found in the leisure pool that had forced its closure since December 2023. All repairs have been made, and regular pool operations can begin.

“We appreciate the public’s patience as we worked through these projects,” said Parks and Facilities Manager Nicole Halasz. “This isn’t as easy as popping out a filter from your furnace and putting in a new one. These are large, sophisticated pieces of equipment used for pool filtration. Our mechanical room has had a major overhaul, staff have been trained to operate it, and we are ready to welcome you back.”

The new schedule for programming beginning February 20th is available on the City’s website at A few spots remain available for Swim for Life lessons for Swimmer 3 and up levels. Staff are offering several leadership programs through March, including Lifesaving Society’s Standard First Aid Recertification, Bronze Cross and Medallion, and a stroke improvement/strengthening course. Registration details are also available on the City’s website.
