Penticton Community Centre leisure pool reopens

The City of Penticton says the community centre leisure pool is finally open.

PENTICTON - The  Penticton Community Centre Pool is now open in its entirety.

The leisure pool is fully operational, according to a City of Penticton media release.

The leisure pool has been shut down since September when cracks were discovered in the pool’s drains following renovations to the pool deck this summer.

Mayor Andrew Jakubeit thanked the community for their patience during the repairs.

“We know how much the community values the Penticton Community Centre services,” he says in the release. “We want to join the staff in welcoming back all of our customers to the leisure pool.”

Customer appreciation programs are expected to continue with a “shop locally” theme next week. Residents will be able to enter draws to win $60 in Downtown Penticton dollars and an "I Heart Penticton" T-shirt.

During the week of Dec. 7 to Dec. 11 festive giveaways will take place at the community centre offering the opportunity to win a decorated Christmas tree.
