Summer 2024 is coming in hot, but luckily, Albertans won’t have to travel far if they’re in search of a splashing good time.

Surrounded by soft sand and beach umbrellas, the Borden Natural Pool is Canada’s first public, man-made, natural swimming hole, perfect for family gatherings and high-temp hangouts.

In Edmonton and want to go for a dip?

Instead of using chemicals, Borden actually depends on rock filters and natural processes in the regeneration basin to clean the water.

For this reason, the guidelines are a little more extensive than what you might be used to.

Here, visitors are encouraged to use phosphate-free sunscreen, must have a head-to-toe shower before entering, and will not be able to swim if they have been sick in the last 2 weeks or have open wounds.

In addition, glass containers, food, street shoes and pets are not permitted, swimmers must wear proper attire, and only unopened, factory-sealed beverages are allowed.

If you’re still eager to take the plunge, Borden Natural Pool will reopen to the public this July, so mark your calendars!

Admission starts at $9 per adult, $7.50 for people between the ages of 13 and 17 or who are over 65 years old, $6 for kids 2 to 12, or $25 for a household with a maximum of 7.

Enjoy and happy bobbing!
