The Jasper Place Leisure Centre (9200 163rd Street) re-opened on February 17th after three years of being closed for rehabilitation. Most of the work done in the 50 year-old building was “back of house” in order to keep the facility operating. Unforeseen circumstances kept the building from reopening longer than originally anticipated. 

Here is a list of all of the building’s improvements, some of which are immediately visible to patrons, while others are behind the scenes:

  • Refreshed lobby including accessible front counter service.
  • Addition of barrier free washroom in lobby.
  • New salt water pool experience.
  • Refreshed steam room and teach pool with waterfall feature.
  • Addition of an inclusive change room with barrier free. washrooms/change room.
  • Additional lockers.
  • Refreshed male and female change rooms.
  • Stair access to the water slide and 5M platform to increase use.
  • New viewing area.
  • Additional parking stalls in the front.
  • New art mural installation.
  • Replaced the pool deck drainage system.
  • Replaced windows.
  • Replaced ceiling in the natatorium (the building containing the pool).
  • Completed structural and waterproofing repairs.
  • Public safety improvements.
  • Removal of hazardous materials repairs to the building structure.
  • Upgrades to the pool sanitary and circulation system.
  • A new boiler and ventilation system.
