The City reports there will be a number of closures taking place at the INVISTA Centre over coming weeks, both for the facility and the Caraco Home Field.

From Monday, June 18 to Sunday, June 24, the INVISTA Centre will be closed for maintenance and updates.  The entire facility will be closed that week – including the fitness centre, rinks, meeting rooms and reception desk – while the rink will remain closed until July 8 for extended maintenance.

Rinks will remain closed until July 8 for extended maintenance with LED standard lights being retrofitted in each ice arena to reduce energy consumption and help improve the quality of the indoor environment.

The CaraCo Home Field will be closed as the centre’s maintenance is scheduled to conclude, running from Monday, June 25 to Friday, July 13.

“After several years of use, athletes began to notify staff that the track material would soften and material would sometimes be found stuck in running cleats,” said Adam McCluskey, manager, recreation facilities in a release. “After reviewing the track condition, it was determined that certain sections of the track were deteriorating and a decision to resurface the track under warranty was made.”

Resurfacing the track will take about 15 days and the facility will retain its IAAF Class 2 certification.

During the shutdowns, fitness memberships will be honoured at Artillery Park Aquatic Centre at 382 Bagot St. and alternative program schedules can be found on this City’s webpage.
