Burlington’s Aldershot Pool to Close in June for Planned Maintenance, Repair

Aldershot Pool

Aldershot Pool will be closing for planned repairs and maintenance in late June 2020. Repairs are anticipated to be complete by February 2021.

The repairs are needed as part of the City’s on-going facility maintenance program. These repairs will add many years to the life of the facility and help keep it a favourite, family friendly location.

“It is important to complete these necessary repairs to the facility to help extend the life and efficiency of this highly used public pool. We understand that this closure may impact those who enjoy Aldershot pool and the warmer pool water offered at this location. We still have many other great pool facilities for people to enjoy, including our two outdoor pools, wading pools and community splash pads during the summer. We are also working hard to have more community-based programming available for participation at the other indoor pools, so you can keep swimming.” — Chris Glenn, Director of Recreation Services, City of Burlington

Participants wanting to continue to enjoy swimming can still use any of the City’s indoor pools. During the summer months, participants can enjoy our outdoor pools, wading pool and community splash pads. Swimming options and schedules can be found at burlington.ca/swimming.

    1. Hi Jan,

      This is John Bkila, the Mayor’s Media and Digital Communications Specialist. The best person to contact with your question or any question about aquatic services, including programs, would be City of Burlington Aquatics Supervisor Heather Kress. She can be reached by phone at 905-335-7600, ext. 6258 or by email at heather.kress@burlington.ca.

      Thank you for commenting on the Mayor’s website.

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.
