One of only Two 50 metre pools in Atlantic Canada

Welcome to Centennial Pool’s Website

Centennial Pool’s Front Desk remains closed due to COVID-19.

June 16, 2021

Please see this Public Service Announcement from HRM regarding the current status of Centennial Pool:

Work by municipal staff is continuing on Centennial Pool to determine the source of a leak that has closed the pool until further notice.    

The facility closed in March 2020 due to COVID-19.  

The facility remained closed through to Fall 2020 to facilitate the replacement of a filtration system, in addition to regularly scheduled maintenance work. Due to the impacts of COVID-19 on labour and materials, some of this work was delayed.  

The scheduled work was completed in December 2020, however, equipment issues and a leak were detected while testing the new filtration system, causing further delays to the reopening of the pool. 

Since the leak was discovered, municipal staff have completed a wide range of tests, including repairing piping, ground-penetrating radar testing and concrete repairs. Work is currently underway to restore the existing pool piping by applying a coating product to seal the inside of the piping.  This work is planned to be completed by the end of June at which time the pool will be filled, and water levels monitored. If the water levels hold confirming that the leak has been fixed, the next phase of work will involve cleaning the pool, balancing the chemicals and testing of the new filtration system which is planned to be completed before the end of July. At that time, a more definite timeline will be provided regarding a reopening date of the facility. 

For further information, please call 311.
