Winnipeg swimming pools are getting ready for splashdown later this month.
The city announced that Kildonan Park outdoor pool will open a week from today for the summer season. All other civic outdoor pools are scheduled to open on Friday, June 27, according to a release.
Please note that the Westdale and St. Vital outdoor pools are currently closed for renovations.
Entry to non-heated outdoor pools will be free all summer long (subject to admission entry requirements and capacity). Those pools include Freight House, Happyland, Norwood, Provencher and Windsor Park.
The city also announced that 15 city wading pools will open July 1 (weather permitting), with the remainder set to open the following day. Operating hours vary from pool to pool, but the majority of venues are open from 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Winnipeg’s unsupervised spray pads are currently open for cooling business, weather permitting. The pads are open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
