Pool at Galipeau Centre expected to announce re-opening date

SF Hub Pool 01The Gallipeau Centre’s pool is expected to re-open soon.

The Record News reports that an official opening date, as well as schedules, including aquafit and lane swims are expected sometime this week.

Officials with the centre took to Facebook to say that it is in the works.

The pool struggled to stay open under its previous management, and shut down in June due to financial reasons.

Councilolor Joe Gallipeau, who also owns the old Rideau Regional Campus where the pool is found , announced that same month that the Galipeau Centre would take over operation of the pool. He said it will be a “members-only” facility – run much like a golf club.

The paper reports that final details surrounding the fee structure and schedules still need to be finalized, and the centre is looking to hire lifeguards too.
