lanes, a shallow children's area and a splash pad capable of independent use
when the main pool is closed. The 400 square meter pool pavilion contains
change facilities as well as an open public lobby and viewing area.

Pool, will be dedicated at the opening of the pool. Public art was

The pool, which has been open to the public since June, received a 1997
Canadian Architect Award of Excellence. The project was selected from 114
entries submitted nation-wide.
