Penticton Community Centre pool to close for annual maintenance

NEWS RELEASE

The Penticton Community Centre’s aquatic facilities will be closing for its annual maintenance and cleaning August 10 to September 2 and will re-open September 3.

The purpose of this annual closure is to complete preventative maintenance on all areas of aquatics including the pools, steam room, hot tub, change rooms and mechanical areas as well as inspecting for damage and to execute major repairs or upgrades that can’t take place during the rest of the year.

“The annual pool shutdown is an important part of the ongoing planned maintenance at the aquatic facility,” says Facilities Supervisor, Chris Schmidt. “It aids in keeping the pool functional and helps reduce maintenance-related service impacts throughout the other times of the year.”

During the closure of the pool, the community can enjoy the recently maintained Fitness Room as well as other programming. To view what programs are available during shut down, please visit www.penticton.ca/recreation.
