The Collicutt Centre water park is closing for extensive maintenance and upgrades starting on Tuesday, September 6 for a period of 10 weeks.

The 10 week closure allows staff an opportunity to conduct a thorough inspection and maintenance on all pool surfaces, equipment and technical systems as well as replace ceiling and wall acoustic tiles, improve the drainage systems, and repaint the water park.

“This is the first time in the Collicutt Centre’s 15 years of operations that the water park will be closed for such an extended period,” said Collicutt Centre Supervisor, Denis Delemont. “We need to complete these essential upgrades to ensure the water park remains a clean, safe and high quality facility for our visitors to enjoy for years to come.”

A portion of scheduled lessons have been relocated to other facilities, including the Recreation Centre and Michener Aquatic Centre. Drop in users are encouraged to experience the pools at G.H. Dawe Community Centre, Recreation Centre or Michener Centre. Visit for a schedule of drop in activities and programs.

The rest of the Collicutt Centre amenities will remain open to the public during this closure. Please call 403-358-PLAY (7529) or visit for a schedule of drop in activities.

The water park is set to reopen on Saturday, November 12, 2016.
