Field House Maintenance Closure | Aug 31st-Sept 22nd, 2016
July 22, 2016
**UPDATE: We’re excited to announce that the maintenance work in the Field House ran smoothly and the work will be completed ahead of schedule. This means we’re re-opening the Field House at 8am on Thursday, September 22nd!
FIELD HOUSE MAINTENANCE CLOSURE DATES
CLOSING | Wednesday, August 31st at 6pm
RE-OPENING | Thursday, September 22nd at 8am
The Field House certainly gets a lot of active play, so it’s getting some special treatment this fall to keep it in great shape. During this scheduled maintenance, we are:
- Sanding and re-finishing the hardwood floors
- Re-painting lines to improve traction and reduce slippage
- Adding new badminton, pickle ball, volleyball lines and sockets for nets
- Painting new hopscotch lines on the court sidelines
The floor is being re-finished with a water-based finish. Indoor air quality (VOC levels) will be monitored on a daily basis. The Fitness Centre and Track will remain open, but Track closures may occur intermittently.
Since our doors opened 5 years ago, we’ve only had one maintenance closure in the full Field House. As we switch to a water-based finish, this will lessen the impact of future re-finishing closures.
AQUATICS CENTRE & DROP-IN FITNESS SCHEDULES
The Aquatics Centre and all other rooms will remain open during this maintenance. Drop-in Fitness classes will continue to run in other areas. View the Fall 2016 Drop-In Fitness schedule.
Here are some ideas to keep you moving during this time – grab a pair of Nordic Poles for a walk around the Track, test out the water slides after a swim, jump in the pool for one of our Aquafit classes or test out our new fitness equipment. Our staff are always handy for an activity suggestion or two!
