Maintenance closure dates for Syncrude Aquatic Centre and TOTAL Fitness Centre announced
(Fort McMurray, AB, July 25, 2014) – The Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo (RRC) would like to inform the community of the dates for the annual maintenance closure at the Syncrude Aquatic Centre and TOTAL Fitness Centre.
The Syncrude Aquatic Centre will be closed from August 25 until September 11, at which time the Canadian Dewatering 54m Pool, training pool and adult hot tub, will re-open. The leisure side, including the Mix 103.7 FM Spray Park, Country 93.3 FM Yellow Slide, ROCK 97.9 FM Rock Slide, family hot tub, leisure pool, and lazy river will remain closed for maintenance until September 26 when the entire facility will re-open to accommodate fall swimming lessons.
From September 9 - 10 the TOTAL Fitness Centre will close for necessary maintenance and deep cleaning, its first closure since the expanded facility opened in November, 2012.
“In 2013, we made a commitment to schedule annual maintenance at the Syncrude Aquatic Centre to coincide with the dates of the DMG Oil Sands Trade Show and Conference in an effort to minimize impact on users and members,” said Tim Reid, Chief Executive Officer of the RRC. “This year we will re-open in phases, as well as coordinate the start of fall swimming lessons to further minimize impact. During this time we will also perform necessary maintenance at the TOTAL Fitness Centre, which sees over 25,000 visits per month. We appreciate the understanding of the community and our 10,000 ONE Pass members as we perform this necessary annual maintenance to ensure our facility continues to deliver the standard of excellence and safety we strive to achieve.”
