When it’s hot in the city, the best way to beat the heat is by cooling off in one of Calgary’s seven outdoor swimming pools. Our pool season may be brief, but there are plenty of ways to get wet quick and enjoy a slip on the slides with these savvy picks.
The South Calgary Outdoor Pool has recently undergone a facelift (sans botox). Not only will swimmers enjoy newly renovated change rooms, but a new boiler means water temperatures hover at a pleasant 28°C, making getting in easy for even the most cold-averse among us. Mark August 13 on your calendar for The Hawaiian, a bash featuring a jumping castle, live music and family activities.
If you’ve got a toddler in tow, consider Highwood Outdoor Pool in the northwest. Not only does it boast a wading pool and two tot slides, some playtime in surrounding Stanley Park makes a perfect way to end your swim day. Keep an eye open for rafters floating by on the Elbow River.
