Swim & Splash


  • Emerald Hills Leisure Centre - Emerald Hills is a modern building, designed with a more competitive swimmer in mind, but there are opportunities for leisure swimmers. Located in Emerald Hills Regional Park in Sherwood Park, you can also enjoy the walking/skating paths around the park, watch the ducks & geese, or take in a high school game of football.
  • Harbour Pool - The pool offers a diving area, Tarzan ropes & other play opportunities. It is a well-loved recreation resource in the City of Fort Saskatchewan.
  • Kinsmen Leisure Centre -Kids love the place with its dive tank, Tarzan rope and water slide. Built in 1975, the building was reto-fitted, so it is missing some modern amenities, but offers a great value.
  • Millennium Place - Featuring a wave pool, lap pool, picnic area, playground and a lazy river! Modern facilities with other options for family adventure. Adults can go work out while kids are swimming. Teenagers can go hang out at the neighboring skate park. Millennium Place is a well-loved treasure in the community and typically quite busy.
