Join Parks and Recreation Staff, me and members of the community for the re-opening of the Jimmie Simpson Recreation Centre with a free community swim and light refreshments.
Take a dip in one of the two solar-heated pools, which are saving the centre $12,000 a year in operating costs. The latest upgrades will make Jimmie Simpson even more enjoyable:
· a new pool filtration system, new lighting fixtures and increased lighting in the pool, gym, multipurpose room, and washrooms
· painting of the walls and ceiling in the gym and lobby area, new gym ceiling, new nets
· improved HVAC and heating systems, replacement of corroded panels
· additional structural supports for new roof decks
