Walter Baker Pool Closure Delayed Until 2024

From the City of Ottawa



The existing pool filtration system has reached the end of its life and is needing replacement. As part of this project, a new filtration system including a sand filter, UV filters, and related pump will be installed to meet current guidelines and code requirements.


Renovations were originally scheduled to begin in Fall of 2023, but that has since been postponed to June of 2024. More details will be given closer to that date.


Staff have already begun work to revise the changes made for the original start date. Learn to swim programming and aquatic club rentals will be returning to Walter Baker for the Fall 2023, and Winter & Spring 2024 seasons.


The City of Ottawa apologizes for the inconvenience this change may have on the community. Their procurement department has informed them that there continues to be supply chain issues. Inconsistencies with respect to communications from suppliers on equipment and product availability are impacting many City construction projects.


They appreciate your patience and understanding and more information on this project will be available shortly.
