Can the pool and fitness centre be built on the current site?

No.

Building on the current site would mean a loss of service to all who use the pool for several years.

For clubs such as Special Olympics, two masters clubs, various Tri groups and 2 kids clubs who currently rent lanes, there is no lanes space available in other pools in the region. They would have no where to go.

  • If the new pool is built on the southwest corner of Central Park, as indicated in the design document, What happens to the basketball, tennis courts and playground currently occupying that sector? Is there a plan to relocate them elsewhere in the park?

    • Derry, that is a great question. Our understanding is that the total budget for the new facility includes funds to rebuild the park. Our hope is that the basketball court can be shifted over to the other side of the park during the build, and then a permanent home found.
