The City of Winnipeg is offering free admission to a handful of its outdoor pools this summer.

Freight House, Provencher, Happyland, Windsor Park and Norwood public pools will be free all summer long as part of a pilot project.

Kildonan Park Outdoor Pool will be the first of the city’s outdoor pools to open for the season on June 16, followed by all other City of Winnipeg pools scheduled to open Friday, June 27.

All pools are open seven days a week, weather permitting.

About 15 wading pools are set to open on July 1, while the remaining locations will open July 2.

A full list of wading pools and their opening date can be found on the City of Winnipeg website.
