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
