Swimming Pool Improvements
City of Mississauga Makes a Splash in Clarkson and Malton

Jun 13, 2011

The City of Mississauga will officially open two new indoor pools in opposite corners of the city, on June 18, 2011:  The $11.8 million Clarkson Community Pool and $11.6 million Malton Community Pool additions are Infrastructure Stimulus Fund (ISF) projects.

Residents are invited to the official opening celebrations on Saturday, June 18:  

Clarkson Community Pool
Clarkson Community Centre & Library, 2475 Truscott Drive
Official ceremony at 1 p.m. with Mayor McCallion & Councillor Pat Mullin
Refreshments, free swim, entertainment and activities to follow until 4 p.m.

Malton Community Pool
Malton Community Centre & Library, 3540 Morning Star Drive
Official ceremony at 3 p.m. with Mayor McCallion
Refreshments, free swim, entertainment and activities to follow until 6 p.m.

At each location, family activities will include displays and demos, buskers, local performers, cookie decorating and a complimentary fun swim. Refreshments will be provided by catering sponsor, Panera Bread.

"The Clarkson and Malton community centres were well-equipped but lacked their own swimming pool," said Paul Mitcham, Commissioner of Community Services. "I know local residents have been looking forward to having a bright, modern pool for one-stop recreational enjoyment at their community centres."

Each pool features a fully accessible 25-metre lap pool, warm-water leisure/therapy pool with spray features and a relaxing hydrotherapy bench. The facilities include an on-deck viewing gallery; viewing areas from the lobby; and family, male and female barrier-free change facilities. Additionally, a relocated Customer Service Desk and new main lobby concession area were constructed at Clarkson Community Centre. At Malton Community Centre, the fitness area was expanded and a new aerobics studio added.

ISF is a joint investment by the Canadian, Ontario and municipal governments to help fund infrastructure projects that create jobs, stimulate the economy and keep local infrastructure in good repair.

A diverse, progressive and award-winning municipality located on the shores of Lake Ontario in the heart of the Greater Toronto Area, Mississauga is "Leading Today for Tomorrow" by focussing on delivering services, implementing its Strategic Plan, delivering value for money, maintaining infrastructure and continuing to be an employer of choice.
