“In the Emerald Hills Leisure Centre we’ve got a six lane 25 metre pool, and a four lane 25 metre pool that has adjustable depths. We’ve got a kids teaching pool, a whirlpool, steam room, and then we’ve got family and specialty change rooms with full accessibility.”
Tadman-Kickhan says Strathcona County is also celebrating the grand re-opening of the Glen Allan Recreation Complex after an extensive renovation.

“It basically included really improving the accessibility of the building, but also expanding the wellness centre by about 3000 square feet. We redid all of the racket courts and added an extra one. And then we also did a lot of renovations to the curling facility and the curling lounge.”
She says the rec centre is 36-years-old, and the renovation was definitely overdue. (ms/td)
