Kiwanis pools remain closed, city increasing aquatics at outdoor pools
The City of St. Catharines is going to increase the number of leisure swims, aquafit classes and lane swims at some of its outdoor pools as the closure continues of the pools at the Kiwanis Aquatics Centre.
The City is offering an additional 107 hours of aquatic programs, such as morning lane swims and aquafit classes at Port Dalhousie Pool and Lion Dunc Schooley Pool.
The Kiwanis pools were shut down in early July after some ceiling tiles fell to the deck below.
Crews are making further repairs to the ceiling and light fixtures.
Information on when the pools will re-open and schedules for registered aquatics programming will be shared as soon as possible.
The Dr. Huq Family Library Branch and community rooms inside the St. Catharines Kiwanis Aquatics Centre are still open.
Anyone with questions about the pools is asked to call 905.688.5600

Ondrej Machala scored two goals and added an assist as the IceDogs dropped a 7-5 decision to the Kitchener Rangers. The third game of the pre-season was played before a great crowd at the Fleming Centre in Beamsville.
Two first period goals in under a minute were not enough as Barrie held off the IceDogs 4-2 Thursday night. Drew Hunter and Andrew Bruder both scored their first goals in the opening twenty.
