Aldergrove Credit Union community pool to close for maintenance reasons

ACUCC pool will be closed for maintenance purposes starting April 1.

It’s not an April fools joke.

Aldergrove Credit Union Community Centre (ACUCC) pool will be closed for maintenance purposes beginning Monday, April 1.

The Langley Township first announced the ACUCC spring pool closure online on March 7.

The canopied Pacific Area off the centre, which includes a a 25-metre, six-lane swimming pool as well as a hot tub and other outdoor leisure pool, is said to reopen April 29 at 6:30 a.m. and resume regularly scheduled aquatic activites.

Nikole Longhi, the recreation supervisor for the ACUCC, attributed the reason for the pool’s closure to general maintenance and warranty work.

“Most Langley Township pools close annually,” Longhi explained.

“We haven’t even hit our one year mark yet, so this will be a time where we and the centre’s contractors and developers go back to the drawing board and assess our progress, as well as inspect and perform general maintenance,” Longhi said.

While maintenance is underway on the pool, all of the centre’s other facilities will run as per usual, Longhi confirmed.

That includes the weight room, drop-in fitness classes and other indoor leisure activities.

Located on Fraser Highway and 270 Street, the Otter Co-op Outdoor Experience was first opened to public in June of last year.
