The Manitou & Community Pool is officially closed for another season! We were excited to get back into the pool and offer lessons and public swimming. Although we had challenges with staffing, we were able to still open and enjoy a great summer. We want to thank our patrons and volunteers for supporting our pool and we appreciated hearing all the positive feedback! We can't wait to get back in the pool for 2023. Visit lifesaving.mb.ca for information on the new swim program!

Manitou's swimming pool was completed in July of 2003. The facility boasts several leisure amenities, including:
- junior olympic (25m) main pool area
- integrated wading pool
- zero depth beach entry
- aerated bubble bench
- three waterslides
- "The Little Dipper" wide slide
- "The Twister" 120 foot flume slide
- "The Plunge" side by side rocket slide
- grass deck area
- 2 large shade structures
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. Due to COVID-19 restrictions some programs may not be available at this time.
|In the Spring of 2015 a second shade structure was added with a little help from our friends at the Manitoba Liquor and 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 partnership 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 stairs and landings going to the water slides.
