The brand new pool at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park is now open and welcoming visitors.
“The Government of Saskatchewan is excited to announce the opening of the new Buffalo Pound Provincial Park Pool,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said. “The original pool opened in 1972 and was a key attraction for park visitors and therefore, re-development was a priority for this government.”
The new swimming pool was designed to meet the needs of a wide range of users. The facility uses universal design principles and includes a sloped accessible entry for young children or anyone with mobility concerns. Hours of operation will be daily from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. until after the September long weekend.
There are a variety of safety protocols that will be in place this year due to COVID-19 when visitors make their way to the new pool, such as:
Buffalo Pound Provincial Park is located 20 minutes northeast of Moose Jaw and offers a balanced blend of nature and recreational opportunities. This park offers excellent hiking and biking trails, fishing, canoeing and kayaking.
Visitors to this park can also enjoy migrant waterfowl viewing at Nicolle Flats Interpretive Area and on the Marsh Boardwalk. Campsites in the park will remain open until the end of September this year and can be reserved online. With the pool and camping accessible into the fall, Buffalo Pound Provincial Park is a great place for visitors to extend their summer.
