Renovations are underway! You may notice an increase in construction noise.  If you wish to avoid this, the construction hours are Monday through Thursday from 6am to 4:30pm.

Family Locker Room – Phase 1: January – April 2024

This is a two-phase project.  This first phase will be to renovate our gender-neutral Family Locker Room as well as some parts of Aquatics and in the back of our building.  This phase is expected to last through April.  All pools will remain operational through this phase.

During this time, the Family Locker room will be inaccessible.  If you are the caregiver of someone and typically assist them in the family locker room, you will need to make other arrangements (see below).

In an effort to provide accommodations, we anticipate having showers on the pool deck available to allow individuals to rinse off before and after swimming.  We also have several restrooms available throughout the Center that can be used as changing rooms, including one on the pool deck.  In addition, we have placed an accessible chair in the restroom across from the front desk for those that may need a chair.

-Drinking fountains on the pool deck will not be available. Water fountains are available in the lobby and fitness areas.

Men’s and Women’s Locker Rooms – Phase 2: April – July 2024

In phase 2 of the project, we will close both our Men’s and Women’s locker rooms. This phase is expected to start Mid-April and run until July. During this time, we will have shower facilities available (a trailer with 4 showers for each gender). In addition to the trailer showers, we will also have our newly renovated Family locker room open. At this point in the project, our saunas will NOT be accessible.

We expect Phase 2 to be a bit more disruptive, but we have a good plan in place to provide reasonable accommodation for all during that time. If you rent a locker, please see below for the question dealing with locker rentals. We will also contact renters directly in the coming week. Please continue to share any questions you have about the project.

I have scheduled 3 open houses for anyone wanting to learn more about the project and ask questions the dates for those are below:

  • Wednesday March 6- 9:20-10:20 am

  • Monday March 11- 6-7pm

  • Wednesday March 13th – 12-1pm

These will be drop-in sessions and will take place in our Activity Studio located south side of the Center.

We will stop locker rental charges during the length of the renovation. Members will need to contact the membership office during membership hours to set up their new locker rental.
