John W. Lindsay YMCA

Client: Southwest Properties

Location: Halifax, Nova Scotia



Coming soon to Downtown Halifax is the John W. Lindsay YMCA, a 70,000- square-foot tri-level complex featuring state-of-the-art aquatic facilities, a running track, gym & fitness areas located within the new Pavillion at South Park development. Aqua Plans provided full design services for the YMCA's aquatic facility which will include a lap pool, teaching pool and spa. 


Both pools were designed with a perimeter overflow gutter and all three bodies of water were designed to be fully accessible and completed with a sleek tile finish. To maximize space and expand programming opportunities, a movable floor (covering the entire area of the pool floor) was included in the design of the teaching pool. The spa will feature 13 hydro massage jets, making it the perfect place to sit back and relax.
