Paddling Pools

Paddling pools are part of the City's Summer Play Programs and are a great place for children  (2-12 years) to cool off on a hot summer's day. Admission is FREE!  

To help children stay safe in and around the water, the City of Saskatoon requires that all participants comply with following policy:  "For every two children under the age of six, there must be one adult or responsible youth (12 years or older) with in arm's length, supervising the children's water play and activity."  The best life preserver for your child is YOU!  Infants and toddlers participating in water play must wear an appropriate swim diaper.

There are 30 paddling pools available Monday to Friday and 16 available on Saturday and Sunday.
