^New! Paddling Pool Dechlorination Process

To reduce the amount of chemical going into the storm water drain system, The City of Saskatoon is required by Saskatchewan Environmental Protection to decholrinate the Confederation Park Paddling Pool.  This process is unique to Confederation Park because it is connected to a storm line as opposed to a sanitary sewer line like the other paddling pools in the city. 

This process involves adding a neutralizing agent to the chlorine. After this chemical is added, it is no longer safe to enter the water under our public health operating license. Therefore, the water is drained, and the pool and park area inside the fence will be closed.

The decholrination process takes 30 minutes and it takes an additional 30 minutes to drain the pool.  Dryland programming will continue in the rec unit and adjacent park for the remainder of the day.   The dryland-only schedule is as follows:

Confederation Park Dryland-Only Programming

  • Monday-Thursday: 5:00pm-6:00pm
  • Friday: 3:30pm-4:30pm
  • Saturday/Sunday/August 1 STAT: 4:00pm-5:00pm

There are plans to change the drains lines from storm to sanitary next summer.
