Nicholas Sheran Pool ready to re-open; changes also being made at other city pools

Nicholas Sheran Pool in west Lethbridge is set to re-open on Monday (Sep. 21), after months of being closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Registration will also begin on Tuesday (Sep. 22) for swim lessons at that pool.

Brad Pack, the City of Lethbridge’s General Manager of Recreation Excellence, says programming at the Nicholas Sheran Pool has changed just slighty in order to account for health protocols.

“We’ve reduced the capacities for lessons, as well as our other swims. The young levels, pre-school through to Swim Kids Four, actually have parents that have to participate as instructors have to socially distance.”

The City is also making some changes to all pools in Lethbridge, including re-opening change rooms, hot tubs and saunas, and no longer requiring pre-booked time slots for public swims.

Robin Harper, General Manager of Recreation and Culture, adds that it’s exciting “to be able to move closer to getting all of our facilities back open again.”

However, pool users are reminded that masks must be worn in all common areas and physical distancing rules still apply.

I started my radio career in 2015, shortly after graduating from Lethbridge College. I have a very strong passion for local news.

Proudly born in 1994, I grew up most of my life in Sylvan Lake, AB and I’ve lived in the Lethbridge since 2012. I’m a below average golfer on a good day, I take as many hiking trips to Waterton as possible in the summer and I love my two cats, Outlaw and Jynx, and my dog, Maverick, more than most people I know.

I look forward to providing accurate, timely news coverage in southern Alberta for plenty of years to come!
