Admission to the recently completed Aldergrove Credit Union Community Centre (ACUCC) was free and despite heavy rain several people took the opportunity to try out the new multi-use facility.
The centre boasts a fitness centre and studio room, an arena, an elevated walking track, multi-purpose rooms, and more.
But most people wanted to try out the Pacific Zone and water park at the ACUCC’s Otter Co-op OutdoorExperience. The Pacific Zone, featuring a covered, six-lane, 25-metre competitive swimming pool with a deep end for diving, a shallower leisure pool, hot tub, sauna, and steam room, is open year-round.

Isaac Bredeman tried out everything but his favourite activity when visiting the new rec centre is the water slides.
“I’d say the slides. I think they’re just fast and twisty and fun,” the boy said.
The rest of the Otter Co-op Outdoor Experience has a seasonally open water park with full sized-water slides, a tidal pool, current channel, a children’s aqua play structure, dry playground, and picnic area.
The facility was possible because of the contributions from many businesses, groups, and individuals in the community as well as a nearly $10 million from the federal government.
