Lion Ken Gabbey Community Pool closes for construction on Aug. 6

Outdoor swimmers are invited to enjoy the last days of Lion Ken Gabbey Community Pool before construction starts on the facility’s long-awaited upgrades this fall.

The pool will close on August 6, three weeks earlier than planned to keep on schedule for re-opening in June 2020.

To celebrate the New Brunswick Day holiday and say farewell to the 40-year old structure, admission to the pool is FREE August 3-5! See schedule for outdoor and indoor pools here.

Additional swim times have been added at the Pat Crossman Memorial Aquatic Centre, which remains open until September 1. The splash pad on Runneymeade Road is open until late September. Residents can also visit the newly-restored East End Pool in Moncton.

Upgrades to the Lion Ken Gabbey Community Pool will improve accessibility for all visitors and extend the life of the pool by another 25 years. They include:

  • A pool heating system
  • A ramp entry to the pool
  • Replacement of the pool deck with a rubberized surface
  • Repairs to the pool’s mechanical systems to reduce operating costs
  • Replacement of chain-link and barb wire fencing with more attractive and secure fencing
  • Brand new pool building with
    • gender neutral change space
    • showers
    • exterior washrooms open for extended hours to support the park’s other amenities
