2017 Aquatic Area Closures

As you may have heard, Genesis Place will be experiencing rotating aquatic area closures in the summer of 2017.

These closures are required to upgrade our drain design to meet new safety regulations. Unfortunately, we were not able to make these changes during the 2015 retiling closure, as we had not received the appropriate new guidelines and designs at that time.

What pool users can expect:

July and August (tentative)

  • The lane pool will close for 5 - 6 weeks (all other aquatic areas will be open)
  • When the lane pool reopens, the dive tank will close for 5 - 6 weeks (all other aquatic areas will be open)

First week of September (tentative)

  • The leisure pool will be closed for 10 days (all other aquatic areas will be open).

The renovation work in the lane pool and dive tank required more extensive upgrading than the leisure pool. The work will not affect our new tiling, and the scheduling has been chosen during the lowest point in aquatic area usage.

If you have any questions about the rotating area closures, please contact recreation.wellness@airdrie.ca
