News about Scona Pool / Rollie Miles Park

A message from Emily Vespi Chair, Friends of Scona Rec…

Scona Pool is aging and the City has indicated it WILL CLOSE the next time major maintenance is required. Currently there is no funding to replace the pool.

The City is redeveloping the site and is required to submit 2 concept plans to Council in the fall. Currently funding has only been approved for redeveloping the parkland (yes, almost everything surrounding Strathcona High School is City land).

When the City presents to Council there will be one option with a rec facility and one option without a facility. Even if the option with the rec facility is chosen Scona Pool is still in danger because it is not guaranteed that the facility will include a pool and no funding to build the rec facility has been allocated yet.

What is being done and what can you do help?

  • Attend the next meeting of Friends of Scona Rec group meeting at 7:00pm March 10th at Queen Alex hall.
  • Visit the FOSR Facebook page and website www.friendsofsconarec.com (still under development), which offers further information for how you help and who to contact.
  • Join the FOSR mailing list through the website or by emailing friendsofsconarec@gmail.com
  • Spread the word to your friends, neighbours, and colleagues about this matter.
