How great does the pool look these days?

Letter writer praises a job well done on renovations to the Terrace Aquatic Centre

Dear Sir:

When I made the decision to move and live in this beautiful community five years ago, one of the first things I inquired about with the front desk attendant at the local hotel I was staying at was whether or not Terrace had an aquatic centre.

I moved from the community of Prince George where the aquatic centre was, and still is, one of the jewels of its various community facilities.

I was pleasantly surprised to find out that indeed Terrace did have an aquatic centre, however, I must admit it was hard to compare with the modern facility in Prince George.

With the recent completion of the renovated west wall of the Terrace Aquatic Centre, it now feels like the entire building has been renovated.

The addition of glass windows allowing natural light to come into the building has transformed the energy within and improved the overall ‘feel’ of the place.

There is also a new air exchange that noticeably helps create a healthier environment.

I applaud the local contractor Genuine Contracting for doing such a great job!

As a regular member, I assure you the improvements are appreciated by everyone who uses the facility. I highly recommend this local company be given the first opportunity to build Terrace a new community centre.

Thanks for a job well done.

Corey Bonnar,

Terrace, B.C.
