Eastlink Centre Pool Maintenance Shutdown

Full Aquatic Shutdown April 21st to May 7th

The aquatic area at the Eastlink Centre will be closed to the public from April 21st to May 7th. This shutdown will replace the regularly scheduled fall maintenance closure that takes place every September. The staff at the Eastlink Centre will be making key improvements, including increased lifeguard training. The pool area will re-open at 6 a.m. on Monday, May 8th.

Regular servicing of the building amenities allows the staff at the Eastlink Centre to maintain a high level of safety and helps enhance the enjoyment of those who use the facility for years to come.

“As we work through this service interruption, it only made sense to address preventative maintenance now as opposed to interrupting service in September,” says Operations Manager, Richard Fletcher. “This work will improve our overall customer experience.”

Membership Loyalty Campaign

The Eastlink Centre will offer membership loyalty benefits to existing members in appreciation for their patience during aquatic interruptions. Those eligible for the campaign can take advantage of this offer in person at the Eastlink Centre South Administration desk from April 24th to May 7th. 

New Pool Schedule

Following the maintenance closure, there will be some changes to the pool schedule to better align with staffing capacity and the needs of the various groups that utilize the area. Those registered for programs will be notified of changes in schedules. The new aquatics schedule is available here.

New Membership Levels

In addition to Member Loyalty Campaign, the Eastlink Centre is proud to introduce new gym and pool specific memberships. These memberships allow more flexibility to those who spend most of their time at the Eastlink Centre in either the pool or the gym. These new membership levels be available starting May 8th.
