New Indoor Aquatics Facility

The new indoor aquatic facility and geothermal heating facility are moving forward. The funding applications for both the Indoor Aquatic Facility and the geothermal heating facility were approved and announced on March 7, 2024.

The new facility will be located on the Sportplex site to the east of the Fieldhouse/Lawson Aquatic Centre, in a portion of the Taylor Field Lands. The Lawson and Fieldhouse will continue to operate until the new facility is open.

The Taylor Field Lands is made up of several pieces the former Mosaic Stadium vacant land, the Sportplex site which includes the current Fieldhouse/Lawson Aquatic Centre and new location of the Indoor Aquatic Facility, as well as the vacant parking lots adjacent.

The next step is to continue working with the design team on design activities.

  • Are they planning to make the waterside accessible for people in wheelchairs? (Including a lift up?) Are they planning on having a lift into the pool?

    Jb asked about 1 month ago

    The features will be determined through the design process currently underway; however there has been a commitment to explore a high accessible waterslide. The design of each pool will consider an accessible way to enter such as a zero-depth entry, ramp and/or lift.

  • How many waterslides are there?

    Michael Sliva asked about 1 month ago

    The leisure amenities, including the number and type of waterslides, will be determined through the design process, which is currently underway.
