Saying Goodbye to The Old UBC Aquatic Centre

To commemorate the last day in the UBC Aquatic Centre built in 1978, a small group of supervisory and management staff took a ‘last dip’ after moving out equipment to the new UBC Aquatic Centre. Many were nostalgic, thinking of the memories in the space, however none more than Aquatics Program Coordinator Leslie Grundy, who worked in the facility for 34 years. Despite having to say goodbye to the old pool, Leslie and the rest of the UBC Athletics and Recreation staff are excited about the opportunities of the new facility, which will open on Monday, January 23, 2017.
