Alexandra Outdoor Pool
The Alexandra Outdoor Pool is Leduc’s outdoor oasis on a hot summer day. The summer hot spot provides public swims, aquatic fitness classes and special events. The Spray Park is next door to the Alex Pool and is free to use.
The Alexandra Outdoor Pool will re-open Monday, July 13.
Things you need to know
- This season, due to limited change room access and a 1-way flow of traffic to maintain physical distancing guidelines in place, lockers will not be available for use. Patrons are asked to not bring valuables and to monitor their belongings on the grass area near the pool.
- In order to ensure 1-way flow of traffic, patrons will be asked to enter through the universal change room and exit through their respective gendered change rooms. For this reason, unfortunately we will not be able to offer a universal change room this season. Capacity of each change room will also be limited in order to maintain physical distancing guidelines.
- Download the Live Leduc App to reserve your spot, schedule your 2 hour Public Swim appointment at the Outdoor Pool. Please ensure you book an appointment for the number of people coming to enjoy Public Swim e.g. if you have a family of 4, choose 4 people from the drop-down – all will be under the Mobile App users name.
- Shallow Water AquaFit is located under Classes – pick the day of the week you would like to attend and reserve your spot
- Also, make sure that the top right hand corner facility drop down is on Alexandra Outdoor Pool to schedule your appointment or reserve your spot in class.
- With the limited capacity and in an effort to have as many people enjoy the outdoor pool as possible, each amenity can only be booked for one appointment each day right now.

Children can swim for their mark in a PFD and the PFD must be worn at all times in the deep end.
Unfortunately, on occasion, pools have to be closed unexpectedly due to pool fouling. Health regulations require that our pools be closed anywhere from 30 minutes to 24 hours for the necessary disinfecting.
