Burlington, Ont. – April 5, 2019 — Angela Coughlan pool will remain open until Friday, May 31 as the project budget is finalized. The pool was originally scheduled to be closed for renovations beginning April 8, until the spring of 2020.

Participants will be able to drop in for recreational and lap swimming and rentals will continue until the pool is closed for construction.

For information on recreational and lap swimming schedules or pool rentals, visit burlington.ca/swimming or burlington.ca/rentals, respectively.

“For pool users and renters, that means we’re staying open longer so residents will be able to use the pool until we get closer to opening our outdoor pools in June. Once the pool is closed, we will have additional resources at our other City pools to help ease the over-flow from Angela Coughlan.” — Chris Glenn, Director of Parks and Recreation

Renovation Project

The renovation project will provide important and necessary repairs and upgrades to the facility. The result will be a more efficient, up-to-date and modern pool facility and will include the following:

  • Partial pool deck replacement around the lap pool;
  • Retiling of the lap-pool deck;
  • Lap pool tank repairs;
  • Replace HVAC and upgrade the dehumidification system;
  • New LED lighting;
  • Plumbing improvements; and
  • Inclusive change space – change room renovation.

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
