Curious about what happens during the closure? The APMC allows facility staff, trades, and contractors to perform important work on the building and aquatic systems. Highlights from 2023 closure include:

  • Overhauled 6 large filters with 7,000 parts inspected, cleaned and re-assembled
  • Over 1.9 million tiles inspected with some repaired
  • 400m of deck drain lifted and cleaned
  • Repainted the mezzanine seating and washroom spaces
  • Drained and refilled 5,000,000 liters of water (* see sustainability info online)

A commitment to on-going and annual maintenance will allow the community to enjoy the benefits of the facility for decades to come.
