Did you know that the Mix Family Aquatic Centre at the LRC is undergoing a variety of upgrades from June to September, 2017?

The 2017 upgrade is part of our commitment to continuously improve the LRC facility and its amenities for our members and the residents of the City of Leduc. Similar to how your home may need to undergo some renovations, our aquatics centre requires significant upgrades as well. These upgrades will include:  

  • Retiling the entire Main Pool basin (Original 1980)
  • Replacing Main Pool acoustic control materials (Original 1980)
  • Refurbishing underground pool piping system (Original 1980)
  • LED lighting upgrades and steam room retiling
  • Routine repairs & maintenance, annual tile replacement, and more!

Through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program the Leduc Recreation Centre received $250,000 in Federal funding. This funding has allowed us the opportunity to complete a variety of important upgrades which will result in a more functional facility for our community residents to enjoy.


What does this mean for you?

Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered! In order to serve you better during the upgrade process we will be expanding hours of operation and swim programming at the Alexandra Outdoor Pool in 2017. This will include more times for public swim, lap swim, Aqua-Fitness classes, and swimming lessons. We have also increased the number of lessons offered in the spring and fall as summer classes will be limited. 

Still prefer swimming indoors? Not a problem! The LRC has partnered with the Beaumont Aqua-Fit Centre to accept LRC Memberships at their facility. If you have any questions about aquatic program changes, please call the LRC Guest Services team at 780-980-7120.
