The Stony Plain Outdoor Swimming Pool has been making a splash in the community for more than 42 years. Since 1972, the Town has operated the outdoor, six-lane pool from mid-May to the end of August every year. The Stony Plain Sharks’ Swim Club operates a successful aquatics program, using this pool as its training base.
The Stony Plain Outdoor Swimming Pool offers public swimming, lessons, pool rentals and aquafit classes. One of the few outdoor pools still in operation in the province, it draws people from Stony Plain as well as from the surrounding areas and is a great place to spend your summer afternoons.
The pool offers the Red Cross Swim Preschool and Swim Kids’ Programs, the Lifesaving Society’s Bronze Medals and many specialty programs. More than 1,200 swimmers take lessons every year from fully certified professional instructors.
At a time when most communities are closing their outdoor pools due to low numbers of users and high operating costs, the Stony Plain pool is a success story. Built in 1972, the pool is kept in top condition and continues to meet the needs of everyone in our community as well as in the surrounding area.
By operating the Stony Plain Outdoor Swimming Pool, the Town of Stony Plain demonstrates our commitment to social equity. The pool is part of creatively meeting the needs of residents through the promotion of equality, well-being, safety, and citizen participation and involvement.
