The Battlefords Co-op Aquatic Centre is back in full operation.

The Aquatic Centre began with a “soft start” on Monday, and was set to resume its regular schedule Tuesday.

To get the word out, Tim Hortons is sponsoring free swims on the long weekend at the facility, she said.

More details are expected to be posted on the city’s website.

The partial shutdown had lasted 33 days at the facility, due to a mechanical failure that impacted the wave pool, lazy river and slides. The shutdown lasted only about four weeks and not the six or seven that had been expected, so the pool is back to full operation ahead of schedule.
