The expansion of the City Centre Aquatic Complex (CCAC) will feature the addition of 250 square metres (2,700 square feet) of new space and renovation of 1,050 square metres (11,300 square feet) of existing space, including the multi-purpose room, meeting space, the Fitness Centre and administration area.
New features will include a more welcoming lobby entrance and new concession, a reorganized and larger fitness centre and studio, expanded multi-use spaces and a renovated administration area. The improvements are expected to increase visits by 65,000 per year and allow for more services and programs, including:
30 more group fitness classes per week;
30 more aquatic leadership programs per year;
Up to 20 new spin classes per week;
21 new pieces of fitness equipment;
More free weight and stretching space; and
More frequent childminding sessions.
Timing & Next Steps
Construction began in February 2021, with completion anticipated by Fall 2021.
The aquatic areas will remain open during construction except during the regular annual maintenance shutdown in September. Some of the CCAC’s fitness equipment will be temporarily relocated to the nearby Innovation Centre (1207 Pinetree Way) to provide some continuity of service.
Due to construction logistics during the project and for the health and safety of the trees, two trees and some landscaping at the corner of Guildford Way and Town Centre Blvd. will be temporarily removed. Replacement and replanting will take place after the project is complete toward the end of the year.
