Aquatic facilities require annual maintenance to extend the life of the facilities and to minimize unexpected closures. Annual maintenance closures at aquatic facilities are scheduled so that there is always at least one pool open and available.
Pender Harbour Aquatic & Fitness Centre
May 31 to July 18
Gibsons & District Aquatic Facility
July 3 to August 2
Sechelt Aquatic Centre
Closed late summer early fall (dates to be confirmed)
In previous years the Sechelt Aquatic Centre has closed for maintenance in May/June and Pender Harbour Aquatic and Fitness centre in August. This year, the Sechelt Aquatic Centre requires the unexpected replacement of the facility’s fire sprinkler system.
Work is underway to secure qualified contractors to complete these essential repairs to the fire sprinkler system at the Sechelt Aquatic Centre. The Sechelt pool closure dates have been moved to later summer to increase the likelihood of contractors being able to accommodate this work in 2021. Finalizing pool closure dates will depend on the availability of these contractors which is expected to be known by mid-July. Updates will be provided at that time.
In 2022, it is anticipated that pool maintenance closures will return to normal with Sechelt pool closing at the end of May to early June, Gibsons pool in July, and August for the pool in Pender Harbour.
