Pools closed at St. Catharines Kiwanis Aquatics Centre

 Repair update

  • Crews will mobilize at the St. Catharines Kiwanis Aquatics Centre on Wednesday, Aug. 16 to begin work on the ceiling in the facility's pool area. 
  • Repair work will include:
    • Reinforcing the existing ceiling tiles and support cables
    • Replacing the fallen lighting tube and reinforcing the supports for other lighting tubes in the pool area.
    • Acoustic tiles that fell from the ceiling will be installed at a later date due to the extended delivery time for the tiles. The tiles are designed to dampen noise and are not required to structurally support the ceiling.
  • Pools have been closed at the facility since July 4 when lighting fixtures and ceiling panels fell onto the pool deck near the leisure pool.
  • Upon investigation it has been determined that a cable supporting the ceiling tiles failed, which pulled down the ceiling tiles and a lighting tube.

Repair Timeline

  • Repair work is scheduled to last into the middle of September.
  • At this time it's too early to know if the work will affect the fall aquatics schedule.
  • If changes to the schedule are required they will be posted at all St. Catharines recreation facilities and available on the City's website and social media channels.
  • An exact date for when the pools will re-open will be shared as soon as possible.
