Moody pool filters could soon be put to test By Helen Polychronakos CONTRIBUTOR

Moody Park outdoor pool’s third filter, installed last winter to correct cloudy water problems, has yet to be tested, according to the city. As a result, the pool is being shut between 4:30 and 5:30 p.m. each day to allow the filter to “rest.” “The issue that we were facing last year is that on days of extremely hot weather, during maximum load, in order to maintain the clarity it was prudent to close the pool,” said Dean Gibson, director of parks, culture and recreation. But he added this year’s daily closures don’t mean that the extra filter isn’t doing its job. That test won’t come until the real hot weather hits, when the city will learn if the bolstered filtration

system can handle high volumes and long hours. Gibson said cool and rainy days so far this summer have kept swimmers away, and the filters have not yet been tested at full capacity. The one-hour break is therefore a precautionary measure until the city can be sure it’s providing a clean swimming pool even with large volumes of swimmers. According to Gibson, a scheduled break is not as disruptive as having to pull swimmers out without notice at the first sign the filtration system has been overworked. Gibson said if the hot weather of the past few days continues for another week, Moody Park pool will attract enough swimmers to put the filtration system to the maximumload test. Pool staff will assess

the water visually a few hours before the scheduled shut down. “If we see that we have a super-high clarity of water for a sustained period, the closure will no longer be necessary.” The city is not considering any legal action against the company that engineered the filtration system, Gibson said. He had no comment about why only two filters were installed during construction and wouldn’t say who was responsible for the miscalculation. “The pool was built and designed according to specification requirements of the Provincial Health Act. Those minimum specifications have not been enough for the length of time we operate.” Other outdoor pools in the region, such as in Kitsilano, don’t have scheduled breaks to let their filtration

The curtain goes up when the sun goes down.

He also said that the term “cloudy water” is an exaggeration because the problem has never been visible to swimmers. But staff who test the water are supposed to be

systems rest but, said Gibson, “those are different animals all together. They’re bigger pools, and the size of the water-handling system is completely different.”

able to see the drain grate at the bottom of the deep end. They became concerned in previous years when they couldn’t.

They’re bigger pools, and the size of the water-handling system is completely different.”

Kiwanis Club of New Westminster president Marge Ashdown and Mayor Wayne Wright were out recently to unveil the new “K” mosaic at the Moody Park Outdoor Pool, to acknowledge the contribution Kiwanis made to build the first pool at Moody Park. The club contributed $45,000 to build the original pool, which opened June 30, 1949 and, according to Ashdown, club members paraded downtown in old-fashioned bathing suits to promote the gala pool opening. That day, more than 2,000 spectators watched the performances of clowns, precision squads and Olympic swimmers in an aquacade called the “Water Follies of 1949.”

Cipywnyk rushed down to Byrne Creek where he saw the foam. He checked twice Monday night and again on Tuesday morning.

He returns to the loading bay when it is burning, then loiters as others gather to watch. Police believe other people may have caught photos or video with the suspect on their cellphone cameras, and are hoping to view the footage.

JULY 7/2011

18th annual Parade of Renovated Homes a success

GVHBA puts home renos on display Renovators and their clients from throughout the Lower Mainland came out to strut their stuff last month. The Greater Vancouver Home Builders’ Association (GVHBA) held its 18th annual Parade of Renovated Homes on June 12, which saw 12 homes with recently completed projects opened to the public. GVHBA President and CEO Peter Simpson describes the event as a big success, with each home averaging between 180 and 200 visits and some receiving as many as 265. Contractors were on hand to explain the projects to prospective clients, while homeowners got a chance to show off their snazzy new digs. “They enjoyed it as much as the folks who were touring,” Simpson says. “Everybody

seemed to be quite happy, they got lots of ideas.” With Lower Mainland homeowners set to spend $4.4 billion on renovations this year, Simpson says the parade was a great way for homeowners to find inspiration for their own houses and also meet contractors. “I view it as a great success as an awareness event, where people can see how renovations should be done,” he says. Simpson says the visitors left with lots of ideas for renovations in their own homes. “They could see that their dreams for their homes are quite doable,” he says. “They left enthused to go home and start their process.” Those who missed the event can visit www. gvhba.org for information on the projects and tips on starting your own renovation.

‘The interest from the public has been phenomenal’

Magnolia is growing in Richmond by Kerry Vital

If you’re looking to get away while still being in the middle of everything, Townline’s The Gardens in Richmond will be just the place for you. The development’s first residential project, Magnolia, is only the beginning of this amazing space. “The Gardens is unique in the sense that you will be away from it all, but ... everything you will need is at your door step,” says Townline’s Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Chris Colbeck. Magnolia will be a four-storey building with three levels of residential, anchored by retail space on the bottom floor. A total of 92 apartment homes will be released, and sales will be starting soon. Colbeck is expecting a great turnout. “Based on the the unique purchasing opportunity that The Gardens provides, the interest from the public has been phenomenal,” he says. “The fact the purchasers will essentially have a 12acre natural garden at their doorstep is an amazing attraction that (they) will not find elsewhere.” Floorplans range from 485 to 919 square feet, and are available in a variety of one-bedroom and twobedroom floorplans. While each home has its own unique

charm, all of them have a plethora of amazing features. Prospective homeowners who have stopped into the presentation centre have no shortage of compliments. “(They) are loving the suite layout and the stylish West Coast homes and architecture,” Colbeck says. Every kitchen will be built in a modern U-shape, which gives homeowners a large amount of counter space so you’ll never need to worry about where to put anything. Luxurious quartzite slab countertops and matte white backsplash tiles combine for a sleek, contemporary look, as if a splash of sauce will never mar the cool perfection. A stainless-steel appliance suite is ready for all your cooking needs, and soft-close cabinets with brushed nickel hardware and undercabinet puck lighting are seamlessly integrated into the entire design. Bathrooms at Magnolia are built to be soothing and serene. Soaker tubs are included, and faux marble ceramic tub splash tiles are the perfect complement.

Polished-chrome faucets by Moen are standard, in addition to the hardware by Taymor and a ceramic drop-in white sink that brings to mind a luxury hotel bathroom. Buyers at The Gardens will have access to The Gardens Club, which will hold a badminton court, ping pong, basketball hoops, a meeting room and a fully equipped gym. Situated on the site of the former Fantasy Gardens, only a castle is still standing at The Gardens. The castle, a replica of Coevorden Castle in the Netherlands that was given to the city for Expo 86, will be turned into a daycare centre.

The Gardens is impossibly close to everything a homeowner will need, from shopping to restaurants. Across the street from the Ironwood and Coppersmith shopping centres, The Gardens is also close to excellent public and private schools, and is minutes away from the Canada Line. Residents looking for entertainment will find it at Riverport, where they will discover the SilverCity movie theatres, The Zone bowling alley and WaterMania pool, just a few minutes away by car. Homes at Magnolia start at $218,800 for a one-bedroom. For more information visit liveatthegardens.ca or call 604-271-3331.

Everything you will need is at your doorstep,” says Townline’s Vice-President of Sales and Marketing Chris Colbeck.
