The Comox Valley Sports Centre Pool reopened Monday, Feb. 13.
The facility had been closed since September as a significant leak was detected during the annual maintenance shutdown.
“We are excited to be welcoming residents back into the Sports Centre Pool,” said Melanie McCollum, chair of the Comox Valley Recreation Commission. “Thank you for everyone’s patience during the closure. We appreciate all the support and flexibility community groups and residents provided, and look forward to seeing everyone coming to enjoy this facility again.”
Since September, staff and contractors worked hard to determine the cause of the leak and potential solutions. It appears the leak has been fixed and the facility reopened with adjusted hours:
• Monday/Wednesday (7:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.) Open swim with two lanes for lane swimming including hot tub and sauna;
• Friday (6 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.) Open swim with two lanes, hot tub and sauna;
• Monday – Friday (3:45 – 6:30 p.m.) Hot tub and sauna available.
The facility is also open for swim club, rentals and leadership courses.
