ARC Swimming Pool Consultation

Thank you for your input. The survey is now closed.


Background:

The City of Quesnel and Cariboo Regional District are prioritizing a renovation to the swimming pool at the Quesnel Arts and Recreation Centre (ARC). The swimming pool is 40 years old and needs architectural, mechanical and electrical upgrades. Upgrading the existing pool is a better strategic investment for Quesnel’s future rather than building a brand new facility.

We are seeking your input on three renovation options for the Quesnel ARC. We appreciate your comments.

We need to invest in our swimming pool

COMMUNITY BENEFITS OF THE ARC

The ARC is essential to personal health and wellness, reducing reliance on healthcare and other costly social services. Recreation boosts the local economy and can help contribute to overall economic development by attracting and retaining new residents. The ARC offers social benefits and strives to be completely barrier-free. Community recreation centres help build strong, safe and inclusive communities.

People of all ages, from 4 months to over 100 years old, use the ARC swimming pool. The ARC is a place for people to learn, exercise, connect and socialize.

THE ARC IS WORTH INVESTING IN

The ARC is more than a building in our community; it has been the core of our community for the last 40 years. The ARC pool upgrade is a City and CRD priority. The ARC is a full-service, multi-use space that:

  • is showing its age,
  • is not energy efficient, and
  • no longer meets the needs of the community.

The facility will require a multi-million dollar investment to prolong its serviceable life and analysis shows that upgrading the existing pool is a better strategic investment than building a new facility.

The current aquatic centre at the ARC features a 6-lane, 25-meter pool with a 1-metre diving board, a small slide and a rope swing. The freeform leisure pool is only accessible by stairs and includes a graduated water depth, spray feature, and a mini slide. The centre also includes a hot tub and three saunas. The community uses the aquatic centre in the ARC for swimming lessons, public swimming, swim club practices and competitions, aquatic therapy and aqua fitness classes.
