The Manitou & Community Pool is looking forward to the 2022 season! We hope to make this year the best one yet. We are in the planning stages but will have hours for public swim and lessons finalized soon! We are working on some new programming and will be bringing back some activities we have not had in the last couple years. We want to thank our patrons for supporting our pool over these last few years with last minute changes and doing our best within the restrictions we faced. We can't wait to get back in the pool for what will be a great season!
We have made a new official Facebook Page! Click here for the link, to stay up to date on everything about the pool.
Due to unforeseen maintenance and repairs needed to be done at the pool, our opening date is yet to be determined. Please stay tuned for updates in the near future. Thank you to the community for your patience and support at this time.
Manitou's swimming pool was completed in July of 2003. The facility boasts several leisure amenities, including:
- junior olympic (25m) main pool area
- integrated wading pool
- zero depth beach entry
- aerated bubble bench
- three waterslides
- "The Little Dipper" wide slide
- "The Twister" 120 foot flume slide
- "The Plunge" side by side rocket slide
- grass deck area
- 2 large shade structures
The pool is open seven days a week from mid June to early September. Programs include Red Cross Preschool and Swim Kids Lessons, Life Saving Society leadership courses, aqua size classes, adult/fitness swimming, public swimming, and swim team practices and competitions. Due to COVID-19 restrictions some programs may not be available at this time.
|In the Spring of 2015 a second shade structure was added with a little help from our friends at the Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Small Capital Sponsorship Program. It was an addition that was long overdue and we were very pleased to have received a grant to help us complete the project.||Fall of 2017 saw some major upgrades to the Manitou & Community Swimming Pool. We replaced the ageing liner which we were able to complete with a generous donation from the Jim Henderson Estate as well as contributions from the Canada 150 Fund.||
Fall 2017/Spring 2018 We completed our "Safety from the Ground Up" Project in partnership with Tire Stewardship Manitoba which allowed us to install recycled rubber safety surfacing to the entire floor of our change rooms as well as the stairs and landings going to the water slides.
