The Lindsay Recreation Complex Pools will be closed all summer for renovations.
Upgrades will begin July 2 and it’s expected the pool won’t reopen until October 1, according to Robin Nisbet, Recreation Complex Services Supervisor
The City of Kawartha Lakes says the majority of the work is being done in the mechanical room and under the floor of the small pool.
Work includes upgrades to the safety alarm and installation of mechanical equipment, pumps and filters. The emergency stop system for both pools will be upgraded, and both pools will receive depth and safety tile markings.
The summer months were chosen for this work due to traditionally lower usage rates, as outdoor swimming in lakes and backyard pools becomes more widely accessible, the City stated.
Programming and staffing at Forbert Memorial Pool in Bobcaygeon (16 River Park Road) has been increased to accommodate additional usage.
