Breithaupt Centre Pool re-opening mid-March
Breithaupt Centre 25-yard pool re-opening mid- March
KITCHENER – The 25-yard pool at the Breithaupt Centre, which was scheduled to reopen in February, will remain closed until mid-March due to construction delays.
The closure will impact swimming lessons in the 25-yard pool. The lessons, which are scheduled to begin in late February, will be delayed 3-4 weeks. Lessons and swims in the centre’s exercise pool remain unaffected.
Registrants who will experience any changes to their swimming lesson schedules are being notified and presented with alternatives by city staff over the next few days.
Recreational swims will not be held at Breithaupt until the 25-yard pool reopens in March.
The Breithaupt pool renovation includes filter system upgrades, complete re-piping, and pool tank upgrades to the 25-yard pool. The main floor will be re-modeled to include a family changeroom, upgraded accessible washrooms and renovated men’s and women’s changerooms.
The delays include work needed to address unanticipated structural issues encountered during the construction and the unexpected need for redesigned plumbing and electrical systems to accommodate the family change room renovations.
Program schedules and renovation updates are available online at www.kitchener.ca, or by contacting Breithaupt Centre at 519-741-2502.
