|Variety Spray Park rendering.|
The newly developed Variety Spray Park in South Glenmore Park, is tentatively scheduled to open July 19. The spray park has been undergoing major redevelopment.
Get out there and have fun
New features include an interactive spray park, picnic tables and enhanced landscaping. Updated mechanical equipment and a new water treatment system greatly improve the spray park’s efficiency. The redevelopment is funded by the Community Investment Fund, created by Council in 2011 to help fund community improvement projects.
The Calgary Outdoor Swimming Pool Association (COSPA) opened its pools this past weekend. COSPA manages seven community-run pools throughout Calgary, including the newly restored Stanley Park Outdoor Pool.
Silver Springs Outdoor Pool to be redeveloped
Silver Springs Outdoor Pool will open this month but will be closed in 2016 for redevelopment. After extensive community engagement, we have committed funds to redevelop the existing pool basin, which has served the community since 1974.
Additional funding is also available thanks to the fundraising efforts of the Silver Springs Outdoor Pool Fundraising Foundation. The pool will reopen in 2017.
