Sparks Fitness Center and pool update

Contact: Anthony J Stafford

We are busy training staff on best practices for cleaning, tracking users in the space, and creating safe policies and procedures for use during COVID-19.

We know many of you are excited for the upcoming opening of the Sparks Fitness Center and the Sparks Pool. In both areas, we are busy training staff on best practices for cleaning, tracking users in the space, and creating safe policies and procedures for use during COVID-19.

In the Fitness Center, we hoped to open on Monday, but are now delayed to make sure we are completely prepared to operate a safe facility. At this time, not only locally, but nationally the challenge is to have enough cleaning supplies to keep patrons safe in the space. We are asking for everyone’s patience as we secure those supplies. We will have more information forthcoming once we can solidify an opening date.

In Sparks Pool, we are wrapping up a summer construction project to repair some structural aspects of the pool. We hope to reopen the pool at the end of September, without any setbacks. Once we have further information we will also share it with the campus community. In the meantime if you have questions, please connect Campus Recreation at campusrec-info@willamette.edu.
