Evidence of the improvements to the pools at the Lindsay Recreation Complex will not be highly visible, with the exception of tile markings, grouting and perimeter repairs. The majority of the work is being done in the mechanical room and under the floor of the small pool.
Work includes upgrades to the safety alarm and installation of mechanical equipment, pumps and filters. The emergency stop system for both pools will be upgraded, and both pools will receive depth and safety tile markings.
The summer months were chosen for this work due to traditionally lower usage rates, as outdoor swimming in lakes and backyard pools becomes more widely accessible.
Programming and staffing at Forbert Memorial Pool in Bobcaygeon, at 16 River Park Road, has been increased to accommodate additional usage.
