New Westminster’s outdoor pool season will be extended in 2022!
Moody Park Outdoor Pool will open April 23, 2022 and Hume Park Outdoor Pool will open June 30, 2022. Both pools will remain open until October 10, 2022 and will offer lane swimming, swimming lessons, leisure swims and Aquafit. All times will require reservation. A schedule will be released in the coming weeks.
Following the decision to decommission the Canada Games Pool, Parks and Recreation engaged the community to seek feedback on extending the outdoor pool season. The survey results spoke clearly to a community preference to extend the operating season with 83% of respondents indicating they would attend a swim program should Moody Park Outdoor Pool open in mid-April.
In response to survey feedback, staff will be exploring options to include semi-permanent tent structures to provide cover and shelter for the public and staff.
We look forward to see you at the pool!
