Winnipeg plans to close the Norwood pool due to groundwater seepage into it

Norwood Outdoor Pool will be closed.

Winnipeg plans to replace Norwood Outdoor Pool with other facilities after the public services department decided that it would be too expensive to maintain a 56-year-old water facility.

The Protection and Public Service Committee will consider a recommendation on the closure of an old outdoor pool and a pool for children and creating of a new territory with a gaming structure, picnic tables, and a beach volleyball court on September 11.

Due to the report, this work will cost $1.3 million, which compensates high operating costs due to a rise in groundwater levels in Norwood.

It is known that it will cost about $500,000 to maintain the pool, and it takes from $4 to $6 million to replace it. In St. Boniface there are four other outdoor pools - and only six in the rest of Winnipeg.
