Outdoor pools and spray parks in Lethbridge are getting set to shut down as we get to the end of the summer season.
Henderson Pool’s last day of operation will be on Labour Day, September 2nd.
Westminster Outdoor Pool on the north side meanwhile, will close up shop at the end of the day this coming Sunday, September 1st.
The weather is expected to be sunny and warm for the final outdoor pool weekend of the season.
Westminster is run by the Westminster Neighbourhood Association. On Monday, September 2nd they will host the very popular Paws In the Pool event from 10:00 am to 4 :00 pm. The fundraiser for the Lethbridge and District Humane Society, allows dogs who have all of their vaccinations (including bordetella) to swim, along with a handler aged 18+.
Admission is a $10 donation and there will be a silent auction and charity BBQ, along with prizes for the best dressed dog.
As for spray parks, both the Gyro Spray Park behind Nicholas Sheran Arena and the Rotary Fountain in Galt Gardens will be open a bit longer than the pools. They’re both slated to be shut down as of September 9th.
