The annual aquatics area shutdown addresses preventative maintenance items such as tile repairs, and equipment checks/repairs on all pool pumps and filters that cannot be completed during normal operation. This yearly work ensures mechanical systems operate efficiently and reduces potential unanticipated failures. A thorough deep cleaning of all pools and deck areas is also completed during this process.

The City of Grande Prairie and Eastlink Centre thank everyone for their patience and understanding during this time.
