Brand New Swimming Pool Opens in Lanspeary Park


Summer of Swimming Opens Across the City

The City of Windsor is excited to announce the opening of a new $3 million 5,200-square-foot swimming pool at Lanspeary Park located at 1250 Langlois Avenue. This state-of-the-art facility replaces Windsor's first municipal outdoor pool, which served the community for over 70 years.

The new pool features a beach entry design, similar to the Remington Booster and Riverside Centennial pools, enhancing programming options and increasing participation and engagement with learn-to-swim activities. The L-shaped pool is fully accessible and includes a strategic design that positions the deep end farthest from the change rooms, adding an extra layer of safety for younger swimmers.

Residents can look forward to a superior swimming experience this summer with the addition of this modern facility to Windsor's extensive list of recreational amenities.

Programming at the new pool will include the following:

  • Parent and tot programming
  • Preschool programming
  • Learn-to-swim programming for participants of all ages
  • Deep and shallow aqua fit classes 
  • Aquatic leadership courses 
  • Opportunities for swim clubs, diving, and triathlon groups
  • Rental opportunities

The City’s Aquatics division employs over 200 instructors and lifeguards for eight indoor and outdoor pools as well as Sandpoint Beach.

All City pools will open to the public on Saturday, June 29, 2024. In addition to the new Lanspeary Park pool, the City offers swimming opportunities at the following sites:

  • Atkinson Outdoor Pool

"Lanspeary Park holds a special place in my heart, as my father owned a grocery store just down the street. As a child, Lanspeary Park is where I learned how to ice skate and swim. I have fond memories of walking here from my father's grocery store early in the morning and lining up to wait for the pool to open. This park and all of its excellent amenities have always been an integral part of the Ottawa Street neighbourhood, and I'm so pleased that City Council remains committed to investing in Lanspeary Park for future generations." - Councillor Mark McKenzie
