Wallaceburg’s indoor Sydenham Pool is closing this summer for renovations.
According to a municipal media release, the community’s only public pool will shut down July 31, and is expected to re-open on Sept. 8.
The work will put the pool out of commission for the month of August.
Upgrades to the men and women’s change rooms will be completed, and the front desk area will also be renovated.
During the closure, all pool memberships will be put on hold to ensure members aren’t charged for the duration of the work. However, residents can still access any of the municipality’s seven outdoor pools and one indoor pool in Blenheim with free recreational swims all summer long.
Chatham-Kent manager of recreation services and community engagement Amy Wadsworth said the municipality is thrilled the pool is getting the much-needed upgrades.
“The renovations to the change rooms and front desk area will enhance the overall experience for our community members and we look forward to welcoming them back once the work is complete,” Wadsworth said in the release.
