FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The North Peace Leisure Pool reopened on Sunday after an extended annual shutdown, although the hot tub remains closed.

The city said work on the hot tub continues, but there is no timeline for reopening.

Beginning on September 12th, the extended shutdown included installing a new water heater, upgrading the HVAC system, grout work, painting, cleaning, and installing new lighting.

The pool was expected to be open on November 7th, but due to a shipping delay, it was extended until November 14th.

The North Peace Leisure Pool schedule can be viewed on the city’s website.
