In the mood for a swim? Beginning later this month, you'll have to take your dip outdoors.
Meadow Park Sports Centre will be closed for annual maintenance from Monday, Aug. 19 to Monday, Sept. 2, while the Centre's pool area will remain closed until Monday, Sept. 23, the Resort Municipality of Whistler (RMOW) announced in a release on Thursday.
The fitness centre will receive a new floor during the closure, while the pool will be drained to allow lines on the bottom of the pool to be repainted.
According to the municipality, work on Meadow Park Sport Centre's expansion and new stretching room is also on track and is expected to be completed on schedule in April 2020.
"The work will cause some noise during the construction period, but is not expected to cause any facility closures," the RMOW stated in the release. The expansion is set to add 138 square metres of space, which will accommodate an expanded fitness centre cardio room and the new stretching room.
