The timeline is subject to change.

June 2022

While preparing for the summer season, City staff discovered significant damage to liners in the 25-meter training pool and 50-metre Olympic pool, caused by severe winter weather.

City staff are advancing an emergency pool liner replacement for the 25-metre pool. The 50-metre pool will not open for the 2022 season, as this pool liner cannot be sourced and installed in time. The 50-metre pool liner and repair will be completed as a part of the planned pool improvements in 2023.

The washrooms located on the exterior of the building in addition to the food vendor will remain operational.

Permits, lane swim and leisure programs can be relocated to Monarch Park and Greenwood Park. Additional lane and leisure program opportunities will be offered at Jimmie Simpson Recreation Centre.

Alternatively, the nearest outdoor pools are:

  • Monarch Park, 115 Felstead Ave.
  • Greenwood Park, 150 Greenwood Ave.
  • Kiwanis Outdoor Pool, 375 Cedarvale Ave.
