Tots to teens are enjoying the upgrades to the Kenaston swimming pool. The improvements have resulted in a cleaner, healthier and safer environment for users youth participating in swimming lessons, swim instructors, lifeguards, as well as recreational swimmers.

The 20 year old facility was showing its age but upgrades completed in winter 2009 have significantly improved its exterior appearance and the interior atmosphere. The new chlorination system ensures swimmers a healthy environment that meets provincial regulations. With a new roof, the leaks and associated musty odour, particularly in the dressing rooms, were eliminated. Replacing the exterior doors improved the security of the building at night and during off-season.

Staff find the new chlorination system more user friendly. They’ve also noticed a big improvement to the lighting and a reduction in the humidity with the new metal roof. “It used to be like a greenhouse in here,” says Alex Jewell, pool manager. “The new chlorination system is so much easier to operate.”

Mayor Dan O’Handley stressed the pool plays an important economic role, “People from Hanley, Bladworth or Hawarden drive to town for swimming lessons and stop to buy groceries.” The incremental business generated by this recreational facility is essential to the vitality of Kenaston’s business community.

The Government of Canada invested over $6,500 to the upgrades of the pool through its Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) program. The town and province contributed matching amounts, and the Kenaston Lions Club contributed $9,900 for the roofing supplies.
