Borden Natural Swimming Pool is Edmonton’s newest summer destination.
Borden Natural Swimming Pool is Canada’s first public, man-made, natural swimming pool.
A great family pool in beautiful Borden Park, it is surrounded by sand and plenty of lounge space with umbrellas, making it a perfect destination to enjoy a summer day.
As no chemicals are used to disinfect the water, the guidelines of the pool are different from other outdoor pools. Please read the pool guidelines before visiting the facility.
