Located on the UPEI campus, adjacent to the Chi-Wan Young Sports Centre, the Aquatics facility and the MacLauchlan Arena are owned and operated by the Capital Area Recreation Inc. (CARI). It was built to facilitate the residents of Charlottetown, Stratford and the surrounding area and is fully accessible to the public as well as to the University’s population. The CARI Aquatics Facility houses an eight-lane, 82 feet (25 metre) competition swimming pool, a leisure pool with waterslide, a toddler’s pool and a whirlpool.
