Fairfields Swimming Club secures Ontario150 Grant:
For 55+ years, Fairfields has been the vibrant hub of summers enjoyed in this fabulous community. During this time it’s always been the efforts and energy of our Members and Board that has kept our small club in the best condition possible while working within a tight operating budget.
For 2017, we’re ecstatic to announce we have secured a Ontario150 Community Capital Program grant in the amount of $250,000.
This much needed capital injection will fund infrastructure improvements at the pool for the enjoyment, safety, comfort and care of all members and guests. Our 8-month project will focus on improving and upgrading our aging outdoor swimming pool and facility.
Here are the major projects we will be undertaking:
- Upgrading the plumbing for the water to both pools which will improve water quality and flow.
- Properly ventilating the basement to reduce the chemical corrosion of the equipment and providing a safer environment for our lifeguards.
- Resurfacing of the pool deck, bathrooms and guard office with rubber surfacing - a safer and more aesthetically pleasing option.
- Sandblasting of our pool interior. We will be removing all of the tiles and putting a higher quality coating on the pool so it will last longer.
- Replacing the existing fence to meet by-law codes and help to improve the aesthetics/comfort of our club.
- Full resurfacing of the parking lot.
- A permanent shade structure that will cover our typical viewing area.
In order to open on time and welcome you to the NEW Fairfields in the Spring, we’re jumping on works and moving forward now!
We’re sure the renovations and improvements will be warmly received by all current members as well as attracting many new members to our special community. We look forward to keeping you abreast of all the improvements that are underway!
