The pool is open seven days a week from mid June to early September. Programs include Red Cross Preschool and Swim Kids Lessons, Life Saving Society leadership courses, aqua size classes, adult/fitness swimming, public swimming, and swim team practices and competitions. The facility is also available for private rentals at a cost of

Want to join our team? We are looking for enthusiastic and responsible individuals to supervise the safety of swimmers, provide excellent customer service, teach high quality learn to swim instruction and provide fun and interactive public swim programming.
In the Spring of 2015 a second shade structure was added with a little help from our Friends at the Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Small Capital Sponsorship Program. It was an addition that was long overdue and we were very pleased to have received a grant to help us complete the project.
Fall of 2017 saw some major upgrades to the Manitou & Community Swimming Pool. We replaced the ageing liner which we were able to complete with a generous donation from the Jim Henderson Estate as well as contributions from the Canada 150 Fund.
Fall 2017/Spring 2018 We completed our "Safety from the Ground Up" Project in conjunction with Tire Stewardship Manitoba which allowed us to install recycled rubber safety surfacing to the entire floor of our Change rooms as well as the the stairs and landings going to the Water slides.
