The community outdoor pool is the popular spot to cool off on a hot summer's day. With swimming lessons, events, and up to date facilities, it welcomes anyone, young or old, to enjoy a beautiful day outdoors.
The Town of Allan and the Allan Swimming Pool Committee are excited to officially announce that we were approved for funding from PrairiesCan under the Canada Community Revitalization Fund (CCRF) for reconstruction of our swimming pool basin in the Revitalization Project at the Allan Swimming Pool.
The CCRF has invested $156,000 towards the project, and it is slated to be completed early summer. This funding accounts for 75% of the project’s anticipated total cost. The remainder of the cost will come out of the Town capital budget. Construction on the project will begin as soon as possible this spring. Because of this, there will be a lot of crews working just off of Main Street and near to Centennial Park.
The Mayor, Her Worship Bonnie Lewis, says about the project “The Town of Allan is thrilled to receive the Canada Community Revitalization funding to assist with our ongoing swimming pool improvements. The Town Council and civic employees take pride in providing quality recreational facilities for our residents and those of surrounding municipalities. In summer, the Allan Pool is a jewel for all ages.”
“Our government is making investments to rejuvenate community gathering spaces like the Allan Swimming Pool through the Canada Community Revitalization Fund. As residents return to swim and play, they will find a revitalized place to connect and enjoy the summer months,” said the Honourable Daniel Vandal, Minister for PrairiesCan.
