When will the new facility be ready for my family to use?
If all goes according to plan, the doors should be ready to open 18 to 24 months after constructions starts. Construction is currently scheduled to start in Spring 2015.

Why are we being asked to contribute? Aren’t my taxes my contribution?
The Town’s contribution to the new aquatic and curling centre is from provincial grant funding; no municipal tax dollars are being used towards this project. The Town of Cochrane puts considerable effort into responsible financial planning for the next ten years of major projects so that a minimum of funding is required from taxes.
How can I help with fundraising?
All members of the Cochrane community are encouraged to get involved by contributing; inspiring friends, family, businesses and colleagues to contribute; holding events; organizing team fundraising efforts; or participating in events organized by others. Go to the Donate page to find out more.
How much will it cost to use the new pool?
We’ll have more details on user fees, costs of passes, lessons, etc once we get closer to opening the doors. Right now, our energy is focused on getting the whole aquatic and curling centre ready to build. But we’ll share that information when we have it.
