Long Bridge Park


Indoor Recreation

The approved master plan maximizes the use of the entire site and includes an outstanding example of an urban 'state of the art' aquatic, fitness and recreation facility for all ages and abilities.

Development of the first phase of the aquatic, fitness and recreation facility will draw upon a number of the component fitness and aquatics pieces. The program will include a 50-meter x 25-yard pool designed for recreational, fitness and competition aquatics. A family leisure and hot water therapy pool will complement the main pool. A free-form water play area that will appeal to a wide range of users will have a lazy river, slides, play features, and a zero-depth "beach" entry.  A separate teaching pool will be able to accommodate recreational programming, therapy classes, and group exercise.

In addition to aquatics, the first phase will include an indoor fitness area for cardiovascular equipment and weight training, community use space, child-care drop off area, locker rooms and administrative facilities.

Although a second expansion of the facility is proposed to be constructed several years after the initial development of the facility, it is anticipated to be an expansion of the health and fitness components, indoor track, large multi-activity center and various court spaces.

Here are answers to some of the common questions regarding the Operating Costs for the Aquatics Center.
