After a lot of consideration, we the COSPA Board of Directors along with our community partners have taken a safety-first approach to both the closure and reopening of the 8 Calgary Outdoor Swimming Pools that we oversee.


At this time, the Silver Springs and Highwood Community Associations have decided to reopen their outdoor pools (Silver Springs Outdoor Swimming Pool and Highwood Outdoor Swimming Pool) for the 2020 summer season. They will have Alberta Health Services Covid-19 restrictions in place for the safety of the patrons and limited capacity available.


Mount Pleasant Community Association (operators for the Mount Pleasant Outdoor Swimming Pool) and Hillhurst Sunnyside Community Association (the operators of Bowview Outdoor Swimming Pool) have decided not to open their pools for the 2020 summer season.


COSPA, which operates Millican Ogden Outdoor Swimming Pool, Forest Lawn Outdoor Swimming Pool and Stanley Park Outdoor Swimming Pool will remain closed for the 2020 summer season. Our revenue needs to cover our expenses for successful operation and with the restriction in place due to Covid-19 this will not be achievable.


South Calgary Outdoor Swimming Pool will be closed due to renovations for the 2020/2021 seasons.
