No swimming at Lindsay Recreation Complex this summer

KAWARTHA LAKES–The City of Kawartha Lakes says the Lindsay Recreation Complex Pools will be closed starting July 2 and through to October 1.

The pools need repairs to the mechanical room and under the floor of the small pool as well as tile markings, grouting and perimeter repairs.

Work also includes upgrades to the safety alarm and installation of mechanical equipment, pumps and filters. The emergency stop system for both pools will be upgraded, and both pools will receive depth and safety tile markings.

The city says it chose the summer months for the work due to traditionally lower usage rates, as outdoor swimming in lakes and backyard pools becomes more widely accessible.

They are increasing staffing and programming at Forbert Memorial Pool in Bobcaygeon (16 River Park Road) to accommodate additional usage.
