Alder Recreation Centre pools expected to be operational in September

April 18, 2022   ·   0 Comments

The pools at Orangeville’s Alder Recreation Centre will reopen before the end of September, if all goes according to plan.

The project, starting out as a pool liner replacement last summer, led to many challenging issues over the past several months, Community Services General Manager Ray Osmond reports. The Town discovered significant structural issues within the Alder building that houses the pools when the pool deck was removed. Hence, the scope, construction, and cost of the project were impacted.

The mechanical systems are slated for installation in April, as are the pool concrete slabs and underground piping, the new leisure and lap pools are to be installed in June, a new slide and spray features will be installed in July, and the decks are to be completed by September. A new pool HVAC system is scheduled for delivery and installation in late August.

It’s expected that aquatic programs will commence the weekend of September 27 if there are no unforeseen delays.
