Servus Credit Union Place Upgrades

Landrex Water Play Centre closure this summer  

Servus Credit Union Place will undergo major infrastructure upgrades this summer. Construction is expected to start May 25, 2021 and end on August 17, 2021. The overall project is part of its Capital Lifecycle Plan and contains regular maintenance, upgrades and the implementation of environmental-driven elements.  

This project will include an extended shutdown of the Landrex Water Play Centre. The timing of the closure considered factors such as foot traffic volume and ideal weather for construction. Several projects were consolidated into this closure period to minimize service impacts. 

Equipment and infrastructure updates include new energy efficient systems that will provide energy savings, reduce future operating costs and extend the life of the facility. Notable project items are replacing the water filtration system in Landrex Water Play Centre, LED lighting upgrades and installing one of the province’s largest solar PV arrays on the facility’s rooftop. 

Other work to Servus Credit Union Place includes:   

  • Extensive roof work and facility-wide annual mechanical, electrical and structural work.   
  • Structural repairs to sauna and water slide, locker replacements and new play features for the Landrex Water Play Centre.    
  • Regular, annual repair, maintenance and replacement, including tiling grout repair, cleaning, and painting at Landrex Water Play Centre.   

While the Landrex Water Play Centre is closed, the public can continue to use other aquatics facilities, including Grosvenor Outdoor Pool, Woodlands Water Play Park and Fountain Park Recreation Centre. Fountain Park Recreation Centre will not have its regular closure for spruce up this summer as this was completed during COVID-19 closures.   

The project will be funded by Servus Credit Union Place Capital Lifecycle, Environment and Utilities Growth Capital, and Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP) Grant.
