Inside beautiful Selkirk Park, surrounded by mature trees, manicured grass, and a sandy beach, lies a one-of-a-kind 110 by 95-meter pool that holds about 5 million liters of water. Additionally, with a paved bottom and a measured, gradual depth increase to 1.5 meters, Selkirk Park Pool offers swimmers a unique experience. In addition, in 2012, the City of Selkirk added an 18-feature Splash Pad adjacent to the swimming pool!
