Frank Mckechnie Community Centre Pool will also be open for Length/Lane Swims from noon to 1 p.m. Don McLean/Westacres Pool at 2166 Westfield Drive is the City's only outdoor pool operating during the 2010 season. It will offer its regular Fun Swim from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. The City's 17 spray pads (with the exception of Clarkson Community Centre spray pad) will also operate during regular hours.
