The Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre is open for business, despite construction that is currently underway on the site.
The District of West Kelowna and its pool contractor Active Living Enterprises would like to thank users for their patience during ongoing construction, which will continue through to the end of October. The District of West Kelowna is completing seismic upgrades, a new entrance and landscaping improvements, including a new patio and pergola, east of the main entrance. The $414,444, Phase 2 project is being completed as part of plans to upgrade the facility in stages over several years. Phase 1 involved the installation of a new HVAC system and preliminary seismic upgrades.
Phase 2 works will be completed in time for the Johnson Bentley Memorial Aquatic Centre 25th Anniversary community celebration, which will be held at the facility from 1 to 4 p.m. on October 26.
The pool, weight room, fitness and general programs are all open from 6 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
