UPDATED: Saanich recreation centre reopens following power failure

Outage cause remains unclear

Saanich’s Commonwealth Place was closed on Thursday morning due to a power outage.

The recreation centre on Elk Lake Drive was closed just before 11 a.m. following an unexpected power failure.

Power was quickly restored and according to a tweet from Saanich Parks, Recreation and Community Services, the facility reopened about 40 minutes later.

The Tot Pool, however, will remain closed for the rest of the day for unspecified reasons.

Saanich News has reached out to the District of Saanich for information about the cause of the outage.
