The pool at Commonwealth Rec Centre is now projected to remain closed until Dec. 14, 2½ months longer than expected. Assuming this date holds, our next free community league swim will be Sunday, Dec. 17, 1-3 p.m.

Pool closure extended; no reopening date yet

posted Sep 25, 2017, 10:06 AM by Scott Rollans   [ updated Sep 25, 2017, 10:14 AM ]

The City of Edmonton has informed us that it has extended the scheduled July 8–September 28 closure of the pool at Commonwealth Recreation Centre. Because of this, our weekly free family swim (1-3 p.m. Sundays) will not resume for the time being. So far, the City of Edmonton has given us no explanation for this delay, and no new reopening date.

We are frustrated and disappointed by this development, and will pass along any new information as soon as we have it.
