Borden Park – Natural Swimming Pool
Status: In Progress | Location: Edmonton
New Perspective Pools is pleased to announce they have been selected to build the Borden Park Natural Swimming Experience pool in Edmonton. Ellis Don is the General Contractor for this project.
Built in 1920, the pool hasn’t been updated since the 1950s and will be replaced by Canada’s first natural swimming experience.
Instead of chlorine, the pool will be filtered naturally. Water from an aquifer goes through a sand filter, gravel filter and regeneration pond with naturally-occurring zoo plankton. Then plant material, is sent to a UV filter where it is pumped into the main pool. The pool will also be designed to skate on in the winter.
