A new aquatic entertainment facility at Petticoat Creek Conservation Area is under construction, and is now expected to open in June 2012. This replaces the existing 35 year old swimming pool that has been a fixture in the Pickering community.

While we intended the new facility to be open for this summer, construction setbacks have resulted in the existing pool remaining closed for the 2011 summer season.

The overall development will include a state-of-the-art 3200 square metre wading pool and swimming area that has a 750-person capacity, and a splash pad with interactive water features. The facility will use sustainable technologies to power pool equipment and heat the water for an enjoyable swimming experience.

Petticoat's 70 hectares of park area remains open and continues to offer:

Cycling, Walking and Running along the waterfront trail
Picnicking for families and corporate events
Exploration of a wide array of flora and fauna
Frequent sightings of indigenous wildlife including fox, white-tail deer and red-tail hawk
Spectacular views of the bluffs
We appreciate the community's support during the rebuilding process, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the new pool in 2012.
