The site will also include a new accessible playground and spray pad.

Designs for the pool were created with input from “extensive public engagement,” according to the city.

“The engagement process focused on understanding residents’ expectations for a new pool, preferred amenities, the overall user experience, and how the pool should fit within Wascana Park,” the city said in a news release.

The new designs have been approved by the Provincial Capital Commission, which oversees development in Wascana Park.

The provincial government’s Municipal Economic Enhancement Program (MEEP) will provide $12 million to the City of Regina for this project.

Wascana Pool is expected to be open for a full season in 2023.
