Pools are much more than places people swim. We get that.

At HCMA, we are known for our pools. We literally wrote the book on them. Our facilities stand out because we accommodate aquatic activities at the highest level, but what we design and deliver are vital public spaces where people gather, play, and feel inspired and engaged.

[Hillcrest Centre is] filled to the rafters with hundreds of swimmers, soakers … ladies doing Zoomba … it’s hard to deny the obvious attraction and success of the “critical mass” type of magnet that has been created here.
