Our Aquafun Centre Staff have missed you! The Town of Taber is pleased to announce that as part of Phase 2 of the Alberta Relaunch Strategy, the Aquafun Centre will be reopening for business on Monday, June 15th at 6:00 AM. Since the Aquafun’s closure in March, we have made some upgrades to our pool. We are thrilled to welcome you back (safely of course) so you can see them in person.

As part of our reopening, we have implemented a number of measures that we are asking all users to adhere to for their safety and as per the Government of Alberta’s guidelines. Please review them prior to visiting the Aquafun Centre:
