Highwood Outdoor Pool Basin Renovation

South Calgary Outdoor Pool

Basin Renovation 2020 - 2021

The South Calgary 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 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 South Calgary Outdoor Pool will be closed for renovation for the duration of the 2020 and 2021 seasons. The pool is anticipated to reopen for the 2022 season.

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 will adhere to The City’s Community Standards Bylaw, 5M2004 for hours of operation, material storage and construction best practices, including dust mitigation.
