|Where will it be built?|
Centralizing our major sport facilities, the new aquatic center will be attached to the Sports Palace next to the Fire Hall. Construction will begin in the spring of 2017 and be completed by March 2018.
Costs to design and to build the facility are estimated at 8.5 million dollars.
Revenues from our evacuation contract with the federal government, careful reallocation of municipal funds and reserves, grants from NOHFC and FEDNOR and taxpayer and fundraising support will ensure this dream becomes a reality.
|You asked: "Why do we need a new pool?"|
|Our current pool was opened in 1972 and is well passed its life expectancy. The building which is not owned by the Town of Kapuskasing has poor air quality and limited accessibility and parking. Let's not forget that the cost of maintenance is extremely high.|
|You wondered: "What are the benefits of a new pool?"|
A new aquatic facility is a long-term investment in our people and our community. We will reduce energy costs by capitalizing on greener energy and modern heat recovery technology.
Furthermore, we will be able to host regulated swim competitions, having direct economic benefits to our service and accommodation industries. Attracting and retaining residents to our community is important.
This facility will provide a welcoming environment for the young and the young at heart, by providing a variety of programs geared to a healthier and more active community.
|New pool features|
Myrtha designed, this modular pool system features laminated stainless steel panels with PVC structure and a soft walk floor increasing comfort and safety in the pool. The 25 meter, 6 lane swimming pool and the smaller, warmer, shallower therapeutic pool, will both be ramp accessible. Enhancing your experience, you will find in and around the water fun features for everyone!
You will find a convenient and accessible family change room as well as the traditionally used men and women spaces. Our second floor will provide an open viewing area and multi-purpose room for all your training, meeting and celebration needs.
Due to the corrosive composition of salt water we have opted for a chlorine sanitizing method. New
