Wave pool and slides at the CVRD’s aquatic centre closed for three days

The wave pool and slides at the Comox Valley Regional District’s (CVRD) aquatic centre will be closed from Wednesday, November 4, 2015 through to the end of day Friday, November 6, 2015 to conduct resurfacing work on the pool basin. The 25-metre pool and heat zone – hot tub, sauna and steam room – will remain open.

Swim lessons on Wednesday and Thursday, as well as two aqua motion classes in the morning and aquasize in the afternoon on Thursday, are cancelled and patrons should know that fees for these programs and classes will be prorated.

“We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause our valued patrons. Some resurfacing work was done during the annual maintenance shutdown and the maintenance work being done now will help ensure continued patron comfort and safety,” said Jennifer Zbinden, CVRD manager of recreation services. “We recognize that this impacts our pool users and we are endeavoring to make this a quick job in order to get our customers back in the wave pool to enjoy the many programs and public swim sessions we offer.”
