For many years, my kids have been going to Jimmy Simpson Recreation Centre for swimming, summer camp, and other activities. This community centre has served the community well over the many years but it needed some upgrades and fixes. So, for most of last year, it was closed for renovation. The pool filtration system was replaced, solar water heaters installed, new lighting system for both the gym and the pool, and a fresh new coat of paint, among the many upgrades.
My kids started the swimming team today at Jimmy Simpson and I had a chance to check it out. It is now indeed very nice. The lighting in the pool is now 2.5 times brighter before, but with a much more energy saving light source. This would be a much better environment for pictures and video if competition is held here. I haven't looked at all the upgrades at the centre, but what I saw was very nicely done. Even the landscaping outside looks much better than before.
