Pool back open Sundays

The hours are still reduced, and a 10-day extension is being offered for members.

An announcement from Bulkley Valley Regional Pool in Smithers:

We are very excited to have built our staffing levels back up and will now be able to open on Sunday’s 12-5 p.m. starting Dec. 2, just in time for the holidays and winter season!

With this change Toonie Swim will stay on Saturdays 5-7 p.m.

This change will be temporary and we will re-evaluate our staffing levels in the New Year to determine if we are able to keep Sunday operations and if we can expand to the full 12-7 p.m. hours.

To our three-month, six-month and annual members, we understand that being closed on Sundays may have impacted you or your family’s use of the facility. We are happy to offer a 10-day extension on your membership for the Sundays we were closed. If you would like to take us up on this offer please email cdolher@bvpool.com or stop by the front desk to put your requests in. Memberships will not be automatically extended so please let us know by Dec. 16 if you would like the 10-day extension.

We appreciate your patience and understanding this fall. Happy winter!

–Bv Pool board of directors and staff
