All services will now take place at that location within the Athletic Complex. We also have a staff stationed at our temporary King St. Entrance to ensure facility integrity and security.

Athletic Complex Facility Access

To accommodate the final stages of the expansion process (including our new front entrance) access to the Athletic Complex will be from the east exterior King St. doors (located by the King St. bus stop location). There is signage directing all facility users to our new entrance location which will always be staffed by our customer service team. Arrangements have been made to ensure this transition is as smooth as possible and will meet accessibility needs.
