Recreation and Swim Complex - CLOSED

(Updated 01/29/23)

Dear Patrons,

The Recreation and Swim Complex will be closed beginning Monday January 30, 2023. The boiler that provides heat to the building failed earlier this month causing flooding in the building. Parts to repair the unit were ordered immediately after the initial failure and are scheduled to arrive in the next week or two. The facilities maintenance crew was able to provide a temporary fix, allowing isolated heat to key areas of the building so we could operate the pool and weight room this past week. Unfortunately, the temporary fix is not keeping the building heated well enough to be safe for employee and patron use. We sincerely apologize for this additional closure. City staff have made this repair a priority and we will reopen as soon as possible. At this time, we do not have a reopening date scheduled but will update you as soon as we are able to provide a safe and fun environment again. We thank you for your patience.
