The Town of Aurora has prepared a draft Aquatics Feasibility Study that identifies future indoor aquatic needs.

The Study, led jointly by Isaac Sports Group and Town of Aurora staff, will consider the future of a new pool tank, identified in the Parks and Recreation Master Plan (2016) as being necessary to accommodate growth in municipal programming and 3rd party rentals with existing aquatic facilities.

The Town of Aurora has prepared a draft Aquatics Feasibility Study that identifies future indoor aquatic needs.

The Study, led jointly by Isaac Sports Group and Town of Aurora staff, will consider the future of a new pool tank, identified in the Parks and Recreation Master Plan (2016) as being necessary to accommodate growth in municipal programming and 3rd party rentals with existing aquatic facilities.

The Master Plan states that a new 25 m, 6-lane rectangular pool tank would be the most appropriate option provided the municipal service mandate remains focused on serving community level learn to swim and leisure needs. A service level target of one indoor aquatic facility per 30,000-35,000 is typical for a community such as Aurora.

This study includes a focus on 50 m tank options that would create potential for tourism, elite competitive training and some community use. Since 2016, staff continue to feel the pressures of a growing community and the demand for aquatic activities.

This feasibility study helps to inform Council and staff to ensure the Town is well positioned to meet the existing and future aquatic facility needs in the community.
