Hi Aquatic people - the Terrace Aquatic Centre will be shutting down for renovations early in 2017. We are doing some research on all kinds of things to potentially make changes to our operational hours and other things when we re-open. Currently we close at 10:00pm during the week, but that means staff stay until 11 or 11:30 pm to do janitorial. This has been proving difficult to staff as most staff are high school or college students who don't want to be working that late. I would really appreciate any input you could give me with regards to how late your facility stays open, what time do you open in the morning. Weekend hours would also be helpful.

And lastly, who does the pool's janitorial?

Thanks in advance!

We have 2 indoor pools in Coquitlam with City Centre Aquatic Complex being open 7 days a week from 5:30am - 10:30pm with the exception of holidays. Lifeguard staff arrive at the pool at 5:00am and leave at 11:15pm. However, most of the pool's janitorial work is done by facility maintenance who are staffed 24/7. They do the majority of the heavy cleaning overnight, with the lifeguards assisting with garbage pick up as well as lost and found just before their shifts end.
