See NOTICE, following this information pak, regarding funded swimming alternatives during the ACT Center shutdown.

Two sessions of the Swim/Water Exercise Program are held each week. The sessions are:

Tuesdays from 5:00pm to 6:00pm and
Saturdays from 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Note: the pool is not open on public holidays

An exercise program is lead by a qualified Physiologist on the first and third Tuesday of the month.

You must be a WPSS member or caregiver/spouse of a member to utilize the swim program [board policy].

There are occasions when the pool is closed for planned maintenance. This information will be advertised in the Polio News as well as under ‘Stop Press’ tab on the web site.
Sometimes the pool is closed at short notice. If we are notified in time we endeavour to send out an email that the pool is closed as well as announcing it on the ‘Stop Press’ page of this web site.

The pool is located at the ACT Aquatic & Recreation Centre in Rundle Park. The address is; 2909 113 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB.  Tel 780-496-1494

  •  25 meter gradual depth swim pool with one of the warmest water temperatures available in Edmonton.

Due to the continued closure of the ACT Recreation Center the decision has been made to reimburse
members who choose to pay for alternate recreation facility rentals. This is independent of the claims
we regularly cover under the Reimbursement Program. Please make your claims on the same form as
your normal claims, but separate from those claims. When you make your claim, you must submit it
with valid receipts from the facility. This recreation claim will not count against your $425.00 yearly
limit and will be in effect only until the ACT Center re-opens.

Below are links to Edmonton, St Albert, Spruce Grove, Ft. Saskatchewan, Sherwood Park, Beaumont
and Leduc recreation sites, as well as the YMCA. Exact opening dates for any of these facilities are
not known at this time. Be aware that some or all facilities may be closed due to Covid-19 precautions.
Please check with the office before committing to a facility. (780-428-8842)


NOTE:      The latest information we have from the City is that the pool will reopen sometime in mid 2022.
