Roof Replacement Project

As you may have heard, the roof of the Greenbelt Aquatic & Fitness Center is scheduled to be replaced.  There are two parts to the project, replacing the retractable Kalwall roof over the Indoor Pool as well as the flat roof over the entrance / locker room areas. The Indoor Pool roof will be replaced in two sections, starting with the side furthest away from the outdoor pool (the vending room side), and then continuing to the side nearest the outdoor pool (the hot tub side).  Effective Tuesday, September 8, the Indoor Pool and hot tub will be closed for approximately 6 weeks.  We will keep the Outdoor Pool open approximately an additional three weeks following Labor Day (September 7), weather and construction permitting.  During the majority of this project, the fitness wing and locker rooms will be open for use; however, we anticipate closing them both for approximately 1 week to repair tiles in the locker rooms.  We do not have an exact date for that portion of the work, but will let you know as early as possible.

We appreciate your patience with this important and necessary work. To accommodate members for the inconvenience during this project, we will be extending memberships after the project is completed.

Updates on the status of this project will be posted on GAFC’s Facebook page and web page, the City of Greenbelt’s Facebook and web page, and included in e-mail blasts to members.
