Make a splash this summer at the City of Saskatoon’s four outdoor pools! The outdoor pools open for the season on the following dates:
- Riversdale Pool (822 Ave H S) on Tuesday, June 6
- Lathey Pool (815 Taylor St E) on Wednesday, June 7
- Mayfair Pool (1025 Ave F N) on Tuesday, June 13
- George Ward Pool (1915 5th St E) on Monday, June 19
The City is pleased to announce new waterslides have been installed at Lathey and Riversdale pools in time for the 2023 season. Both pools have unique features and the replacement waterslides have been designed to suit the functional layouts at each facility. Lathey’s new run-out design is the most notable change. Like the slides at Mayfair and Shaw pools, it ends at the base of the slide rather than splashing into the pool, offering patrons ease of access and exit.
A general admission provides drop-in access to public, lane, parent and tot, family swims and aqua fitness classes. Available again for the summer are the popular outdoor pool bulk tickets. Purchasing a pack of 10 outdoor pool passes provides a 20 per cent discount off regular general admission rates. Children under six years of age are admitted free to outdoor pools when accompanied by a parent or guardian. Visit saskatoon.ca/leisureonline for drop-in schedules.
Swimming lessons are offered at the outdoor pools in July and August. Class options are listed in the Spring /Summer Leisure Guide, which is available for pick up at any leisure facility or viewable online at saskatoon.ca/leisureguide. Registrations are accepted online by logging into your Leisure Online account or calling or visiting any Leisure Centre.
Please be aware that outdoor pools will be cleared immediately if lightning occurs and will close if the temperature is 14 degrees or lower, or during steady rain conditions. Patrons are encouraged to sign up for Service Alerts at saskatoon.ca/servicealerts or follow @YXEServiceAlerts on Twitter for immediate updates.
