Unfortunately, those in the Mill Creek area will have to wait until 2024, as this community’s public pool will remain closed for the duration of the season.
Can’t wait to make a splash this spring? Patrons can guarantee fast access by reserving a swim time on their Move, Learn, Play website as far as 7 days in advance starting May 13th (for Fred Bradstock).
Reservations aren’t required – but you’re definitely going to want to claim your spot on hotter days!
As always, admission to all city pools is FREE with an Edmonton Recreation Centre membership or summer youth pass (available June 19th), otherwise, their regular admission prices apply.
