Our Outdoor Pool in South Calgary, Altadore, Garrison Woods - SW, Calgary

Real Estate Agent with Remax House of Real Estate


Have you been to our most awesome outdoor pool yet this year?  If not … why not?  (It is at 3130 16 Street SW).

At a recent South Calgary Board Meeting someone had the audacity to raise the question:

“Should we close the pool? We lost $20,000 last year.”


Like many of you, I very much value our pool … but almost never use it!  So I committed to using it and brought some of my triathlon training buddies to the facility.  I loved our early morning swim.  However, I noted some of my buddies were laughing and ‘complaining’ about the pool deck and scratching their fingers on the bottom of the pool.  I took no notice – as they are just girly and wimpy.


Later in the day I suggested to my 12 year old we go swimming. He immediately said … ‘maybe’.  I incredulously asked why he would not want to go to the pool.  He spoke without hesitation about the facility … and all the things he did not like about it.  My wife then spoke up about the things she did not like about it.


I was simply amazed … until I thought about it.  Why is this wonderful facility so neglected?  Why does the building have such poor curb appeal? Why did we have a wonderful facility built in the 1970’s (I presume), and why is it not currently a ‘world class’ facility? How come most of the city’s outdoor pools … seem shabby?


Like many of you … I probably will not take the time to find out the answers to these questions … and get involved in trying to make the facility world class. I know I probably should.  Perhaps you are interested in stepping up and helping me find out the answers. Could we … make a difference?
