Tim Horton Events Centre

 

The Tim Horton Events Centre is located in Cochrane, northern Ontario and named after NHL player, Tim Horton, Cochrane’s most famous native son. The facility includes an NHL size ice rink, multipurpose space, community hall, concession, fitness centre as well as the new aquatic centre. Pool attractions include 5 x 25m lane swimming, leisure lagoon, lazy river, tots pool,  sauna, swirl pool, and waterslide.

The swimming pool opened in the summer of 2006 and was an immediate hit with the residents of Cochrane. The combination of lap and leisure pool allowed for the best of both worlds (the fun of a leisure pool and the training/fitness use of a lap pool) while reducing construction and operating costs.

The interior décor of the aquatic centre was designed to allow the residents to escape the summer heat and freezing winter temperatures into the tropical oasis of the pool.

VDA functioned as Specialist Aquatic Consultant to the local firm of B.H. Martin Consultants for this project.
