by Caitlin Osborne |

COQUITLAM, BC, Dec. 2, 2019Pinetree Community Centre (1260 Pinetree Way) will be closed for maintenance from Monday, Dec. 23, 2019 and scheduled to reopen on Monday, Jan. 6, 2020. 

The gymnasium at Pinetree will be closed a bit longer, closing Thursday, Dec. 19, 2019 and scheduled to reopen on Monday, Jan. 20, 2020.

The maintenance work is needed to meet our public safety standards and service expectations. The gymnasium floors are being resurfaced to improve the play surface while other upgrades to the facility include painting and minor renovations.

Drop-in Fitness
Drop-in fitness classes are available at City Centre Aquatic Complex (1210 Pinetree Way) and Glen Pine Pavilion (1200 Glen Pine Court). Both facilities also have drop-in weight room access and are within walking distance of Pinetree Community Centre. Find the drop-in schedule at www.coquitlam.ca/fitness for all available group fitness classes. 

Why Do We Need Maintenance Closures?
Maintenance closures are needed to meet public safety standards and service expectations. The facility is open to the public 14 hours per day, every day with over 1,600 people coming in to use the facility daily. Occasional maintenance closures allow the City to perform work that cannot be completed while the facility is in use. These closures are essential for extending the life of the City’s assets, reducing the likelihood of unplanned program interruptions and ensuring a safe environment for all staff and patrons.
