Portage la Prairie Multiplex

 

The PCU Centre multi-plex includes 2 NHL size ice sheets, walking track, fitness centre and a variety of multipurpose and ancillary spaces, but the jewel in the crown is the Shindleman Aquatic Centre, Manitoba’s largest leisure/wave pool. Opened in August 2010 the leisure pool includes 6-25metre swim lanes, lazy river, tots pool, zero beach and ramp entry, 212 foot long waterslide and a 14 person whirlpool. The project was designed allowing a future lap pool to be added in the future. Having the lap lanes in the wave pool allows the tank to do double duty for fitness and wellness as well as recreation and play.

VDA was the Aquatic Design Consultant for this project and worked with the Winnipeg based architect (Stantec) and the community to develop a facility that was not only affordable, but best met the needs of the community and residents.
