If spending some time at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park is part of your summer, you can take having a dip at the outdoor pool off your list of things to do.
The park says an inaccesible leak under the pool’s concrete basin is irreparable,
A spokesperson for SaskParks, Robin Campese, says while the pool is closed now and for the summer, there is a chance it may have to permanently close and that they will have to look at options moving forward including replacement and the cost of replacement.
The pool, which has been in existence for over 40 years, has had infrastructure issues in the past, but nothing like this.
Workers affected will move to other positions in the park and anyone who had paid for swimming lessons this summer at the pool will get a refund.
