Aquatic center closing for two weeks

Time for a little R&R after a busy summer.

The city of Hillsboro’s Parks & Recreation Department’s Shute Park Aquatic & Recreation Center (SHARC) will close for its annual repair and cleaning break from Sept. 2 to 14.

This annual closure will allow for preventative repairs and a thorough cleaning of the 43,480 square foot center. Various enhancements will occur, including pool mechanical room repairs and backflow testing; major cleaning; replacing the walls of the sauna; repairs to the workout and cardio equipment; and replacing lights in the warm water pool.

“We greatly appreciate the community’s patience while we rejuvenate SHARC,” said Paula Rose, Hillsboro’s aquatics manager.

“The aquatic and recreation center is enjoyed by more than 230,000 customers each year,” Rose said. “This closure and maintenance work is necessary to extend the lifespan of the facility for the community.”

The facility will reopen to the public on Monday, Sept. 15.
