The Comox Valley Regional District sports centre pool will re-open to the public on Monday after seven months of renovations.

“This is phase three of a four-phase project,” said Sheila Van Nus, marketing specialist for the CVRD. “The final phase will include the unveiling of a brand new sauna and a 23-person hot tub in late-February or early-March.”

A highlight of the sports centre renovation is the addition of three wheelchair accessible bathroom facilities. There is one located in each of the men’s and women’s pool change rooms, along with a family bathroom in the main lobby that will serve both the wellness centre and arena visitors.

Regularly scheduled programs, club practices and drop-in programs that have been operating out of the aquatic centre will return to the sports centre.
