Outdoor pools are generally open mid- to late-June until late-August/early-September. However, here are some basics:

  • Ken Gabbey Community pool can be found at 1 Killarney Road. It has a large playground and ballfield as well as plenty of parking.
  • The East End pool is managed by the City of Moncton at 35 Fergus Street, and the Centennial Park swimming pool at 811 St George Blvd.

If you are looking for the best local splash experience, visit Magic Mountain. The water park offers many attractions for children, including four slides at Puddle Jumpers Pond and a pirate ship, lighthouse and whale splash pad.

The Centre for Sports and Physical Education (CEPS) at the Université de Moncton is a great place to start. They offer public swimming on Saturdays from 3 PM to 4:25 PM for only $3, thanks to the City of Moncton’s support. On Sundays, the fun continues with a swim time at the same hours, costing $4 for children and $12 for adults.

If you’re in Sackville, keep an eye out for public swimming sessions at Mount Allison University’s pool. It’s a great way to meet fellow residents and stay active.

Everyone, happy swimming in Greater Moncton !
