The $2.13 million improvement and addition to Al Anderson Memorial Pool were formally opened on July 7.
The renovations to the aquatic facility, located in City Park at 4949 - 207 St., include a modernized entrance, roof and electrical system. The new features are a family changing area, multipurpose room, outdoor viewing deck, canopy structure for the outdoor bleachers and enhanced security fencing.
These upgrades will allow City and area residents to take part in outdoor recreational activities in a more modern and impressive facility.
"The Government of Canada is helping ensure Canadians have access to the modern and essential infrastructure they need, today and in the future," said Langley MP Mark Warawa.
City Mayor Peter Fassbender said with its partnership with the senior government, the City now has a "fantastic facility . . . (which) will serve our citizens for years to come.”
One-third of the funding for this $2.13 million dollar project was came from the Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) program as part of Canada’s Economic Action Plan, with the City of Langley contributing the remaining two-thirds of the cost.
The Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) program is investing $500 million in recreational facilities across Canada over a two-year period. Visit the websites for the Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) program in the West, or Canada's Economic Action Plan for more information.
