The G.H. Dawe Community Centre will be closed for a week longer than originally planned.

The facility was originally scheduled to open next Wednesday but will be closed until Sept. 7 because of demolition work and other internal construction.

The pool was set to be closed until September and the facility was fully closed for most of August during construction.

Most of the amenities in the facility will open next week, including the gym and the pool. The arena will still be closed until 2023 while the new playing surfaces are being completed.
