The KBCA has been hearing concerns from Families with young children about the lack of Children’s Swim Programs offered at the Beaverbrook Outdoor Pool behind the Beaverbrook Mall.
The KBCA has had discussions with the Directory for the Beaverbrook Pool who works out of the Richcraft Recreation Centre on Innovation Drive.
We are working together to see what the actual demand is for Children’s Swim Programs for the Summer of 2016 and beyond.
The reality is that enrollment at the Beaverbrook pool has been dropping year over year and the City of Ottawa cannot afford to offer Programs without sufficient enrollment. In other words, they need a commitment before they hire instructors for the Summer.

Feedback is needed no later than May 31, 2016 to:
