Aquatic Centre Turns Fifteen

A pool party will mark the milestone of the CVRD’s aquatic centre offering 15 years of fitness, fun, waves and water slides in the Comox Valley. The celebration, which takes place on Saturday, November 22 from 1:00 - 4:30 pm during the everyone welcome swim and slide at the aquatic centre, will offer fun games for the kids, prizes, treats and a special surprise. Regular admission rates apply.

“We’re always excited to see residents and visitors alike enjoying the slides and wave pool, and all the other amenities such as the lap pool, heat zone, fitness centre and meeting rooms,” said Jennifer Zbinden, CVRD’s recreation services manager. “The aquatic centre is a wonderful community asset that’s continued to flourish over the years with many long term staff and patrons, user groups and corporate partners all contributing to make the facility a thriving centre.”
