The city said swim lessons, lap swim, free swim, Aqaufit and fitness drop-in sessions will resume with additional swimming lessons taking place on Sundays.

Repairs, which prompted the closure of the pool, have been taking place since July.

A study conducted in 2017 found the T-bar system supporting the acoustic tiles in Pan Am Pool had corrosion due to the high humidity and the corrosive pool environment.
