submitted by Jill Sturdy, Municipality of NG

The Municipality of North Grenville is pleased to remind residents that the Kemptville Pool opened to the public on July 10. All public, family and adult and lane swims are being offered for free until July 16.

“We know how much our local residents value the Kemptville Pool during the hot summer months. Council would like to thank residents for their patience during this brief delay,” emphasized Mayor Nancy Peckford.

“To mark the opening of this year’s pool season which looks a bit different, we are pleased to offer all public, family and adult swims for free between Monday July 10 and Sunday July 16, 2023,” Mayor Peckford added.

“The forecast remains quite hot, so get out and enjoy the pool!”

Please keep in mind that temporary measures have been implemented to support pool operation and programming while the construction on the expanded pool house is being completed.

In the Spring of 2023, the Municipality of North Grenville entered into a partnership with the YMCA of Eastern Ontario to manage pool programming.

Public swim, family swim, and adult/lane swim, as well as the Kemptville Bluefins Swim Team, Aquafit, Parent and Tot have begun.

Between Monday, July 11 and Sunday, July 16, 2023, the Municipality of North Grenville will offer free swimming on all public, family and adult and lane swims.

The regular fees per swim are $3 for adults, $2 for seniors (55 plus) and youth (16 years and under), and $1 for children 3 years old and under. 

Background on Riverside Park Recreation Expansion Project:

In 2021, Council approved a significant investment for Riverside Park, with construction beginning in September 2022. Recreation amenities identified were based on public engagement in the 2020 Parks, Recreation and Culture Master Plan.

New Recreational Amenities as part of the Riverside Park Recreation Expansion Project include:

1) a new building facility that will support accessible washrooms and provide year-round outdoor access to other users of the Park,

2) a splash pad with a variety of spray elements including a mega bucket soaker which we expect will open later this summer, and

3) a 50 by 100 feet outdoor rink with a concrete base. Elements will include ice refrigeration, provisions for a roof structure, and the facility will be designed to support summer sports such as basketball, ball hockey, and special events.
