Castlegar Millennium Ponds opening soon

The ponds will be open for swimming any day.

The swimming ponds at Millennium Park will open soon.

City staff started filling the ponds Monday.

It takes about 48 hours to completely fill the ponds, and the city plans to have them open any day.

The ponds typically open between the middle and end of June, but after hearing calls from the public asking for an earlier opening date, councillor Florio Vassilakais plans to ask staff to look at opening the ponds open by the beginning of June in the future.
