WINNIPEG — More than four years after closing down for repairs, Winnipeg’s oldest swimming pool is finally reopening Monday morning.
Sherbrook Pool first closed in 2012 because of structural problems.
The 86-year-old building was plagued with drainage issues, electrical issues and corroded steel beams that hold up the roof.
The renovations were expected to cost around $4 million and the city, province and Kinsmen Club of Winnipeg covered the bill.
It was slated to reopen in May 2016, but the city pushed back the date as some of the drain connections surrounding the pool were leaking.
