City releases design of what new Wascana Pool could look like

A report on what a new Wascana Pool could look like will come to the City of Regina’s executive committee on Wednesday

Reginans were asked to give their views on what they would like to see and over 5,300 people took part.

Some of the highlights of that report are:

• Two separate pool basins that include a leisure pool with various recreation amenities (including a lazy river, toddler zone, water slides, and zero depth entry) and a 25-metre by 25-metre pool (including ten lanes, one- and three-metre diving boards, and climbing wall), that allows for varied water temperatures to suit the needs of different pool users. This enables flexibility to deliver various programs throughout the facility concurrently.

• A potential accessible play structure and spray pad outside of the pool fencing, allowing for an extension of unstructured use beyond normal pool hours in addition to providing potential programming space.

• A concession that can also be accessed outside of the pool space by park users.

• Pavilion style support buildings designed in harmony with the landscape and architecture that exists within the park. These buildings will feature inclusive and accessible showers, change spaces, and customer service areas

If all goes well, the new facility will be in operation in 2021.
