Highwood Outdoor Pool Update

Highwood Pool is getting a new basin!!!! We are sorry but it will not open for the 2018 season.


Silver Springs Outdoor Pool Update

The City of Calgary has taken an active role in this year’s operation of the Silver Springs Outdoor Pool as part of the final stages of its construction commitment.  Our construction schedule calls for a Father’s day weekend opening, (Saturday, June 16th) and we are currently on schedule to meet that date.   The pool systems will be undergoing testing before the scheduled opening date and the operator has been asked not to make any commitments to users until the tests have been completed.
