Swim center plans closure for annual maintenance

Closure will run Aug. 26 to Sept. 15


The Canby Swim Center will close Aug. 26 to Sept. 15 for annual maintenance.

“The big thing this year is we paint the tank,” said program director Nathan Templeman. “We do that every three to five years.”

The tank is the pool itself, about 75-feet long by 42 feet wide.

“That’s why it’s a three-week close,” Templeman said. “There’s a drying time before and a curing time afterwards.”

It takes about eight hours to drain the 150,000 gallons of water from the pool. On any given day during the summer, the Canby Swim Center can have about 200 in its learn to swim classes, he said. And more if advanced classes are included. The swim center still has open spots for its August summer swim lessons.

Signups for fall classes are underway. For more information, call 503-266-2761.
