Red Deerians can make a splash when the Recreation Centre Outdoor Pool opens for the summer season on Thursday, weather permitting.
The Recreation Centre will adjust to spring hours and the community is encouraged to check online drop-in schedules prior to their visit at www.reddeer.ca/dropin.
The outdoor pool is located at the Recreation Centre, 4501-47A Ave. It features a 50-metre pool for public and lane swimming, one- and three-metre diving boards and a shallow children’s area with spray features. There are deck chairs for lounging around the pool.
Because of the heat, the city’s Blue Grass Sod Farms Central Spray & Play park opened ahead of schedule on May 15. Featuring a 7,500 square foot spray pad with 35 spray toys and two dump buckets, the park operates daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the northwest corner of Rotary Recreation Park at 47A Avenue and 48 Street.
Both the Spray Park and Outdoor Pool are weather dependent.
