New Therapeutic Pool Addition to Mississauga Valley Community Centre

This therapeutic pool will offer gentle and effective ways to get and stay fit.

The new 3,100 square foot, fully accessible, warm water, therapeutic pool addition to the Mississauga Valley Community Centre/Terry Fox Pool will help provide local access to warm water therapeutic programs to meet the wellness needs of people in rehabilitation, the growing number of older adults in our community, and anyone who wants to include a gentle and effective exercise program in their lifestyle.

Benefits of Warm Water Therapeutic Exercise:
Therapeutic pool programs promote relaxation, reduce pain, improve circulation and increase exercise tolerance, and will benefit people with conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis, stroke recovery, joint degeneration, neurological impairment or anyone recovering from injury or surgery.

New Therapeutic Pool Addition Features:
Special pool features will increase access to program benefits and include:
  • warm water (92 degrees)
  • a relaxing hydrotherapy bench
  • three feet to a maximum four feet two inches depth
  • wheelchair ramp access
  • wide shallow teaching steps
  • pool lift and full body sling support lift available for those unable to use ramp access, and
  • several water features such as dump bucket and rooster tails in shallow area (active for open swims)

Technical Building Improvements:
Technical pool improvements also include installation of a new dehumidifier which will serve the new therapy pool and the existing lap pool, as well as updating the existing lap pool by replacing tiles on the pool tank and deck, and upgrading the building structure. This project will meet requirements of the Mississauga Green Building Standards for Municipal Buildings.

Construction Schedule:
The project is currently in the detail design stage. Construction will start this summer on the therapy pool keeping the main pool operational until the end of November, 2011. At that time the necessary repair work will begin on the main pool. Both the warm water therapeutic pool and the main pool will open in spring of 2012.

Check this webpage for more information about the construction and closure schedule as the project progresses.
