MEDIA RELEASE
RE: CLOSURE OF THE OUTDOOR SWIMMING POOL FOR 2020 SEASON

The Town of Fort Macleod officially announces that our pool will not open for the 2020 season. Council has approved moving forward on the modernization of the public pool and the seasonal closure of the pool provides an opportunity for construction on the pool to start earlier.

This combined with the likelihood that the province will not allow public pools to operate this summer, or significantly delay the opening of public pools due to the COVID-19 pandemic, assisted the Town with this decision.

We know residents will miss not having a pool to attend this summer, but it is our hope that the summer of 2021 we will have a nicely modernized pool for our residents and visitors to enjoy.
