The Golden Pool is closed for the season Print Article Font Size
Pool-and-mountains.jpgToG Rec Services staff would like to thank everyone for another great season at the Golden Pool!

The pool is now closed for the season. The spray park will remain open until mid-September, so you can still take the littles to the park to cool off.

Like many other communities in our region, we normally close our pool at this time of year in order for our staff to make repairs and winterize the pool while also preparing for fall operations at our other facilities. In addition, because our lifeguards are seasonal workers – many that attend post secondary school – we do not have life guards on staff in order to operate the pool.

The Golden Pool faced an overall shortage of lifeguards this year, resulting in some reduced hours and Wibit closures. We apologize for any inconvenience this caused and remind residents that with more lifeguards we can host more swim times.

We are well connected with other communities and always able to help point people in the right direction to obtain lifeguard certifications!

Residents can also take the training right here at home! We offer lifeguard training throughout the pool's operating season so it is easy to get certified. Contact us for more information at pool@golden.ca.
