Crestwood Recreation Centre to reopen May 8

Medicine Hat – Crestwood Recreation Centre will reopen with regular hours on Monday, May 8 following the unplanned closure of the facility on April 19 to replace the main boiler.

Swimming lessons and Aquafit classes will resume on Monday as originally scheduled. All swimming lesson participants will be contacted regarding the change in location, and Aquafit classes will be available for booking online.

The replacement of the boiler, which was originally scheduled for July, means the annual maintenance shutdown that would have occurred this summer will no longer be necessary. With the recently announced delay of the opening of the Echo Dale swim lake until mid-July, this ensures additional swimming pool capacity for residents during the early summer.

The City of Medicine Hat thanks residents for their patience and understanding during these necessary repairs.
