The wait is over, the Lion Ken Gabbey Pool is reopening!

RIVERVIEW (N.B.) – Outdoor swimming is set to return to the Town of Riverview when the Lion Ken Gabbey Pool reopens on August 7, 2020.

Residents are invited to join us for a grand opening event on Friday, August 7, from 1:00-2:30 p.m.

To christen the newly-renovated pool, we’re inviting residents to be one of the first bubbles to do their fun-jump of the 2020 swimming season. A fun-jump could be coordinated, themed, or costumed. There will be treats, prizes and photos taken on site. Pre-registration is required; please visit townofriverview.ca/lionspool for reservation and event details.

The pool has been closed since August 2019 while a $1.3 million project was carried out to improve accessibility for visitors and extend the life of the pool by another 25 years.

Upgrades include:

  • A redesigned entrance roadway, outdoor gathering space and site aesthetics;
  • A new facility that includes a gender-neutral change room and improved staff areas;
  • Exterior washrooms to support the baseball field and future planned activities/facilities;
  • Upgraded accessibility components, such as a pool ramp;
  • Improvements to the pool deck, basin, mechanicals and pool heating systems.

The outdoor pool will offer lane and recreational open swims. Pre-booking is recommended as spaces are limited. Visit townofriverview.ca/swim for current schedules and to make a reservation.

As a reminder, you should not visit the pool if you feel unwell, have shown symptoms of COVID-19, or have travelled outside the Atlantic Bubble in the last 14 days.
