Waterpark, sauna and pool to feature at US$13m 'aqua-gym' complex in Quebec

The government of Canada and Quebec municipality have each pledged to invest US$4.4m (€4m, £3.4m) for the construction of a large-scale aqua-gym complex in the town of Dolbeau-Mistassini, the government of which will fund the same amount.

The facility will feature nn indoor waterpark, including a shallow pool, slides and water games; a six-corridor pool; two diving areas; a sauna; two mezzanines; and a gymnasium.

"Cultural and recreational infrastructure helps make our communities places where families can have fun, where neighbours can get together and where Canadians can celebrate the many cultures that make up our country," said Amarjeet Sohi, Canada’s minister of infrastructure and communities.

“Our government is proud to make investments that improve people's quality of life while fostering economic growth and creating high-paying middle class jobs.”

The premier of Quebec, Philippe Couillard, added the new facility will encourage people to adopt an active lifestyle and allow “young people to practice sport or physical activity of their choice in the best possible environment.”

Speaking about the unconventional three-pronged investment structure, Dolbeau-Mistassini mayor Richard Hébert said: Thanks to the financial partnership of our two levels of government, we are realising a project that the city has been carrying out since 2013.

“We will allow the entire population of neighbouring towns to enjoy our swimming pool – a supralocal infrastructure. At a time when the adoption of healthy lifestyles is becoming more and more important, the provision of adequate infrastructure is a key role that we are proud to take on. "

An architect for the project has not yet been revealed.
