Expansion Update – March 2017
It’s hard to believe it’s been two years since construction started on the new aquatic/curling facility/fitness centre. Come May, the new Fitness Centre will open with double the space of the old facility, lots of new equipment, much bigger change rooms and lots of glass to see the outdoors and into the atrium. The new Guest Services will open at this time. This year the Cochrane Chamber of Commerce Trade Show, May 6-7, will be held on the new curling dry pad and Totem 1 arena dry pad.
July, families will be splashing around in the lazy river, soaking in the hot tub, watching the kids play in the leisure pool or taking swim lessons, sliding down one of the two slides, doing rehab exercises in the warm water therapy pool, swimming lengths in the lane pool and / or be a participant on one of the local swim teams.
Come September curlers will start playing in leagues, school groups will be learning the finer points of the game, programs will be running to introduce and enhance skills and we will host several bonspiels.
Once the new expansion is turned over to SLS FSC at the beginning of March, we will start construction on the new larger martial arts/multipurpose space on the second floor. Once completed, we will convert the current martial arts centre into a Climbing Centre. The back wall will have a traditional climbing wall and there will be ‘funky’ climbing panels nearer the front to attract the younger crowd. Large glass floor to ceiling windows will replace the drywall so people can get a great view of the Climbing Centre.
