Best Swimming Pools in Edmonton
Are you tired of the ordinary backyard pool? Do your friends marvel at your creative landscaping, while all you want to do is brag about how much fun you have in your brand new pool? It doesn’t have to be that way! Today’s homeowners are saying goodbye to the traditional swimming pools and hello to custom-designed water parks that both the family and friends will love. No matter what your budget, there is a perfect pool out there for you. But where do you start?
One of the best places to find swimming pools in Edmonton is through a local pool builder. They can work with you to create a design that fits your needs and your budget. You can choose everything from the size of your pool, type of filter system, and even the shape. When it comes to features, you will have plenty to choose from, too. Do you want a diving board or slide? Are stairs more your style? Make sure you pick something that is safe for everyone in the family.
After designing your perfect swimming pool, installation is a breeze. Most pool builders have experienced crews that can have your new waterpark up and running in no time.
Here is a list of swimming pools in Edmonton
1. Queen Elizabeth Outdoor Pool & Kinsmen Spray Park
Edmonton offers a few outdoor pools, and I’m grateful to have such fantastic amenities accessible to us all over the city. This was my first trip to Queen Elizabeth II outdoor poor. Located along the river valley and adjacent to Kinsmen Park. When the bridge is completed, I am certain that it will be a pleasant stroll in the summer.
Because there is no place to get food, you’ll have to bring everything with you. Picnics are essential! There are several nice areas to sunbathe, seek shade, and relax by the pool. The pool is big and popular on a sunny summer day, so prepare to wait in line! There isn’t a lot of room once you’re in, but I appreciate how they split the pool up into three sections. In addition, there are three colors on each design: blue for the kids’ model, green for people floating or swimming slowly, and red for divers. There were a lot of divers! It provided for great people watching.
It’s free to go. The door personnel just oversee your luggage and separate out any empty water bottles before allowing you to enter. The changing rooms and restrooms are clean and in good working order.
2. Fountain Park Rec Centre
Hip hip hooray for partially saltwater pools! In addition to the Splash zone pool for children, there are several family change rooms, a toddler pool, two deep pools, a large slide, and a big hot tub – Love Fountain Park!
Taylor was the favorite coach of one of the toddlers, who had just completed her first unparented swim lessons. This is the place to go if you want to take swimming classes or lessons with children, teens, and adults!
Due to the high number of swim lessons and schools that use this pool, there is a limited amount of open swimming time. Please confirm the schedule before coming to class!
3. Mill Creek Pool
In the summer, go to Mill Creek! Mill Creek is an excellent location to tan or cool off on a hot day since it offers several options.
It’s still pleasant, even though it becomes quite congested on hot days (especially on weekends). The people enjoy spending a few hours in the sun at my local tanning salon. There are not a lot of outside pool alternatives in Edmonton, so it’s fantastic to have one that is truly excellent.
There is a little cafe serving drinks and light foods where you may purchase them. They also have lifeguards on duty that actually do their job. They swiftly address an issue if someone is breaking the rules or creating pandemonium, which I am thankful for.
Mill Creek is a fantastic location to spend the summer days in Edmonton since we have so few of them.
4. Oliver Outdoor Pool
This pool is in my neighborhood, and I appreciate the convenience of it. I enjoy sitting in the sun and bathing on hot days, and I like to swim when I need to cool off.
Want shade? No problem. There is a large tree-shaded lawn near the pool, which provides additional shade. However, keep an eye on the bird droppings! The birds like to lay their eggs in those trees (if you know what I’m talking about).
There is a concessions stand that sells soft drinks and water, chips, and sweets.
This pool isn’t as crowded as the others in the city, which is good. That, along with the ease of use, has made it my most regular. It’s all good in my opinion.
5. Fred Broadstock Pool
Only a few of the many swimming pools in Edmonton are located outside. The Kinsmen pool, which was located near the park’s playground and picnic area, was not nearly as lovely as the Fred Broadstock pool. It was enjoyable, though. Because the city is allowing free access to all outdoor pools this summer (2017), it was quite crowded. When my youngster saw that they offered two different height diving boards, he was shocked. To be able to swim safely in the deep end without wearing a life jacket, youngsters must be able to swim a full length of the pool doing a front crawl.
There was limited seating, so I’d advise bringing your own lawn chairs unless you plan on being in the pool for most of the day.
Most of the pools have diving boards, and all have lanes for swimming. The majority also have spray features and interactive water toys. There is usually something for everyone at Edmonton’s outdoor pools!
