Facility Update (effective August 13, 2022)
We wanted to update and remind you of the upcoming capital improvement projects and planned facility maintenance in August and the impact they will have on users.
Elevator Rebuild (New Timeline)
This project is set to begin on Monday, August 22nd and could take up through September 9th. For the entirety of the project, the main elevator will not be operational and the lower-level amenities will only be accessible by stairs. Since the elevator is the main access point to the track, the walking track will also be closed at this time. For those who use the elevator to access the CCC amenities, please plan to use the stairs while this project is active. We will continue to send updates as this project progresses.
Lap Pool Filter and Heat Exchanger Replacement
This project begins on Monday, August 15th. During the replacement, the lap pool, leisure pool, hot tubs, and splash pad will be closed. The steam room and sauna will remain open to members and guests. We will have additional lifeguarding hours at the Clayhole Beach during this time, head down and check out Firemen’s Park! We plan to have the aquatic area reopened on Tuesday, September 6th.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition.
Facility Update (effective April 8, 2022)
The staff at the Chaska Community Center would like to thank you for your continued patience and support over the past two years and we navigated the many ups and downs of the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the measures that was implemented upon reopening from the original lockdown in July 2020 was moving all the cardio equipment into the lower gym to account for social distancing requirements through Minnesota Department of Health. In May of 2021, all of the restrictions from MDH were lifted for gyms and fitness centers; however, out of an abundance of caution and concern for our users, we opted at that time to keep the cardio equipment in the gym to allow for COVID cases in Carver County to slow down. Knowing that we always intended to return the equipment back to its original location, we have been monitoring our gymnasium usage and feel as though the time has come to get back to 'normal.' Staff will take on the project of moving the cardio equipment back into the wellness area May 31st through June 3rd. During this time both the weight equipment, cardio equipment, and lower gym will be shut down. The functional fitness area will still be available for use.
Thank you for your patience through this project! We will continue to communicate through email, website, and Facebook as we get closer to the date.
