A complete guide to Edmonton's outdoor pools to hit up this summer

Jun 8 2022, 5:12 pm

As the days get warmer and the sun stays out longer in Edmonton, we can’t wait to hit up some outdoor pools to cool down.

So grab your swimsuit and towel, and let’s explore the great outdoor pools Edmonton has to offer this summer season.

Before you head off to the pool, be sure to check if a closure is in effect for your chosen location.

Closures are determined by temperature (below 18 °C), extreme weather (stormy, heavy rain, lightning/thunder), and bookings.

The outdoor pool status is updated daily at 10 am and 2 pm.

Borden Natural Swimming Pool is Canada’s first public, man-made, natural swimming pool. It’s surrounded by sand and plenty of lounge space with umbrellas, making it a perfect destination to enjoy a summer day by the water. Borden depends on rock filters and natural processes in the regeneration basin to clean the water instead of using chemicals.

Water in Borden Park Natural Swimming Pool is treated by replicating naturally occurring filtration.

Address: 7615 Borden Park Road NW, Edmonton, AB T5B 4W8
