In collaboration with local schools and AHS, Park Valley Pool will be open for school organized, cohort swimming lessons beginning Mon., Jan. 25.
The pool will remain closed to the general public until further notice from the Province.
Park Valley Pool staff have been working with AHS to find a way to allow the facility to open to some degree while still operating within the current restrictions from the Province. Staff remain committed to upholding the high standards of cleanliness that are expected by both the public and AHS.
Recognizing the positive impacts that recreation and exercise can have on children, we are very excited to welcome students back to the facility!
We understand that this is very frustrating for our regular users and families; we hope to be able to open the facility fully and welcome everyone back for regular programming and lessons soon. ... See MoreSee Less
You have no idea how excited the kids are to be able to do some sort of Normal school fun....thanks for letting them come
and here I thought "we were all in this together?" Do kids not catch or spread Covid?? How come physical fitness and recreation is only important for children. Many of us have paid a year in advance to use these facilities, and have been shut out or pushed aside.
What about homeschooling families? Are we able to form cohorts for swimming lessons as well?
Why is the town not pushing for all to be open??? If you can have groups at the pool why can’t 1 person book a time at a gym? This makes no sense how they pick and choice what is open and to who gets to use it.

I am very interested in daytime homeschool swim times. Hopefully you have information soon.
Jessica-Dean Dusterhoft -maybe we can go swimming soon!
oh this is exciting !
Lift the restrictions!
It's a start, good job getting them to allow school sports.
Will the pool be offering any kind of extension on the 1 year family passes due to the facility closures?
There is still no new pool? What about the $10M which was donated by an oil company to build one?
