Nanaimo Aquatic Centre closes for upgrades

A revamped Beban pool will open with expanded hours next month as Nanaimo Aquatic Centre closes for upgrades.

The City of Nanaimo will shut down the aquatic centre for a month beginning Aug. 30, as the facility undergoes upgrades and maintenance.

The work, budgeted at $350,000, will see new showers in change rooms for disabled patrons, maintenance on the wave machine and movable floor and a switch from chlorine gas to chlorine pucks.

The shutdown happens shortly before Beban pool and weight room reopens to the public on Sept. 2 after a $750,000 revamp. It will have extended hours while the aquatic centre is closed. To see Beban’s hours visit the public schedules page at www.nanaimo.ca/schedules/parks-recreation-culture/.
