Canada Games Complex
The Canada Games Complex was constructed in 1981 to host the aquatic events of the 1981 Canada Summer Games in Thunder Bay, Ontario. It is Thunder Bay's primary fitness facility, and its features include a swimming pool, indoor fitness areas, a fitness testing area, and an indoor running track.
The facility has been open to the public since the end of the Summer Games in 1981, and since that time has seen many renovations and additions, including a café, water slide, and expansions to its fitness areas. It accommodates approximately 450,000 visitors every year.
Located near the entrance to the complex is a twisting wooden sculpture titled "Vertere". It was created in 1981 by Paul Epp of Cambridge, Ontario. It depicts a twisting motion, which is common in sports.
