How We Got Here



Constructed in 1971, Crystal Pool and Fitness Centre is one of a kind. No other facility in the City of Victoria offers the same access to affordable health, fitness, social and well-being programs.

As one of Victoria’s oldest and most frequently used recreation facilities, the building now requires significant investment to meet current building, system and accessibility standards.  

Over the past year the City has been conducting a feasibility study, gathering public input on the current and future community need, as well as developing potential facility options. Council has directed staff to develop a plan for a new facility, approving a budget of $69.4 million.
