With the addition of brand new speed slides to look forward to this summer at Winkler's Aquatic Centre, there will be another feature that won't be available for pool goers.
After much consideration, the City of Winkler has decided to decommission the two hot tubs adjacent to the splash pad area and dressing rooms.
The city says it based its decision on the high maintenance nature of the hot tubs, the staff supervision needed, and with outside temperatures, it has become increasingly challenging to keep them open.
With the removal of the hot tubs, additional greenspace will be created for pool goers.
Swimmers will get their first chance for a dip in the Winkler pool on Friday, which is the opening day at the Aquatic Centre.
