NOTICE – Aquatic Centre Gym & Sauna Closure

In response to a recent inspection of by Vancouver Fire Rescue Services (VFRS), the weight room and steam room at the UBC Aquatic Centre are closed until further notice.
The VFRS inspection was a routine follow up visit to an evacuation of the facility that occurred on April 29. The closure of these amenities is a preventative safety precaution to adequately address some of the chemical room equipment that need to be replaced. The replacement of the equipment does not pose a threat to the public. The pool will remain open while we look to replace the chlorination system.
Our priority is to ensure that the environment we provide our patrons for swimming and recreation is as safe as possible. We have put in place a stringent environmental and safety monitoring system. If there are any further problems, we will take immediate action to resolve these issues.
We are working diligently to reopen the steam room and weight room as soon as possible. We will continue to provide updates as this project progresses.
