Please Note that the Highwood Outdoor Pool will be closed over the
2018/2019 seasons.
For more information on our basin renovation please
see below.
Thank You for your support over past seasons.
We look forward to showcasing our beautiful new basin upon reopening.

The Highwood Outdoor Pool basin has reached the end of its useful life and needs to be replaced
in order to 
continue operation of the pool. Renovations will bring the basin up to
modern standards, extend the lifespan of the pool, and enhance customer
experiences and accessibility.


The design for the pool was completed with significant consultation with the
Calgary Outdoor Swimming Pool Association (COSPA). The new basin will accommodate,
to the extent possible, both current and projected community needs, as well as
accessibility concerns. The approved design includes:

  • A 25-metre pool with swim lanes
  • A zero-entry teaching area
  • An accessibility ramp
  • Upgraded circulation and filtration systems

Timing and impact

The Highwood outdoor pool will be closed for renovation for the duration of the 2018
and 2019 seasons. The pool is anticipated to reopen for the 2020 season. 

During this time, citizens are encouraged to visit one of
Calgary’s other outdoor pools, wading pools, or spray parks

We understand that construction of the new park will have an impact on the community
and will do our best to minimize disruption and ensure the safety of our neighbours.
The contractor adheres to The City’s Community Standards Bylaw, 5M2004 for hours
of operation, material storage and construction best practices, including dust mitigation.
