East Hants aquatic centre one step closer to reality

The construction tender has been issued for a new aquatic centre in Elmsdale.

The Municipality of East Hants has been working with a design team over the past several months to finalize the components to be included in the aquatic centre, as well as the design of the interior and exterior of the facility.

It will feature six-lane, 25-metre lap pool, waterslide, a leisure body of water with ramp access, hot pool, splash pad, and even a multi-purpose room.

The aquatic centre, which will be built next to the Lloyd E. Matheson Centre, is expected to cost $19 million.

Officials are hoping for a summer 2019 opening.
