(Fort McMurray, AB, July 28, 2017) - The Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo (RRC) would like to inform the community of the dates for the annual maintenance closure at the Syncrude Aquatic Centre, as well as the dates for annual deep cleaning and maintenance at the Fitness Centre at MacDonald Island Park.

The Syncrude Aquatic Centre will be closed from August 28 – September 17 for annual required maintenance. This maintenance is necessary to ensure efficient operations of the aquatic centre and to minimize future unanticipated closures due to unscheduled maintenance requirements.

The Fitness Centre at the Suncor Community Leisure Centre will be closed August 26 and 27 to allow for deep cleaning, routine maintenance and equipment repairs.

“We appreciate the understanding of the community as we complete this annual maintenance work,” said Rachel Orser, Interim Chief Executive Officer of the RRC. “We are committed to excellence in service delivery, and having the opportunity to ensure efficient operations at the aquatic centre and fitness centre through regularly scheduled maintenance assists us in achieving this goal.”
