This summer, let’s make the most of long sunny days by languishing poolside, or more accurately for us moms, splashing about with our little swimmers. When the heat is on, cool down at the city’s best outdoor pools.
Within walking distance of trendy Kensington Village, it’s hard to believe you’re still in the inner city at this lush nine-acre park. Mature trees flank the large wading pool and shade the picnic space, while nearby a playground and cricket field provide fun distractions for curious tots.
Plunge into the smell of chlorine, sunscreen and concession popcorn at this nostalgic site set along the Elbow River. Thanks to the flood, the wading pool has received a complete overhaul including a spray deck. For the older set, the main pool offers plenty of fun including lane swimming, lessons and a concession stand. Just outside the pool you’ll find access to the river, multi-use pathways, BBQ pits, loads of green space and a playground.
Ready for a swim? Sounds cool to us.
