Upcoming Projects

Exact dates and details to follow, but we’re making plans to replace the lockers in the Mens and Womens Wet Change Rooms in the fall. In addition to a general refresh of the spaces, the metal lockers will be removed and replaced with lockers more suitable to a wet environment, like the ones in the new Universal Change Room.
