RQM optimistic outdoor pools will open this summer

·1 min read

The two outdoor pools in the Region of Queens Municipality (RQM) are scheduled to open this summer.

Both the Milton Centennial and the North Queens Aquatic Centre were closed last year because of the pandemic.

“We budgeted the money to have our pools open this year,” said RQM Mayor Darlene Norman. “We are moving ahead with preparations and getting them ready to go.”

Whether they actually open depends on the province and the health regulations in place at the time, however.

“Questions remain on how many people may be allowed in and that kind of thing,” said Norman. “But for those wondering, we are optimistic that we will be operating both pools. We ask everyone to be patient and we will keep everyone up to date.”

Both pools normally open their doors near the end of June each year.
