Come on in, the water’s warm!
The Aldergrove Outdoor Swimming Pool opened for the season on Monday, June 13.
The pool is freshly painted and everything is ready for the seven day a week operation, from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. daily through to the Labour Day long weekend.
Timeslots are usually reserved for swimming classes and private parties are also booked by patrons but most of the hours are open to all the public, for the regular admission prices.
For calendar of hours see http://www.tol.ca/Calendars/Recreation-Calendars.
Drop-in admission fees for outdoor pools (not including tax) are: child 4-12 yrs. $1, youth 13-18 yrs. $1.52, adult 19-59 yrs. $2.38, senior 60+ yrs. $1.52, family (2 adults and children) $3.81.
Children under four years are free but at all times in the water, all children under seven years of age must be closely supervised, within arm’s reach at all times, by a responsible person who is at least 16 years of age.
Ten-visit cards and season passes are also available.
The outdoor water spray park is already up and running next to the pool and it’s free.
This Saturday, June 18, Canada Bread is hosting a special summer kickoff pool party, with free admissions, food and door prizes. From noon until 4 p.m. there will be free swimming, games, crafts, sports and a barbecue, plus a chance to win a free week of summer day camp.
The pool is located at Philip Jackman Park, 32 Avenue at 271 Street.
