FREE swimming in Winnipeg Pools

Every Friday morning, we take the kids swimming for phy-ed and I teach them how to swim.  Every week I watch as they progress…  We have been doing this for over a year and we go early Friday morning because it is FREE.  Yes the city of Winnipeg has certain pools in the city that have approximately an hour blocked off for FREE swim weekly.  This is perfect as we have 5 in our family, facility admission for a family would cost $10.72.  Last year we went every week for 10 months, we have saved over $400 just by going to the FREE swims.  We go to Margaret Pool in Fort Richmond and the water temperature ranges between 30C-32C which is perfect for the kids.

Here are the pools in Winnipeg that have the FREE swim and the times.  (Winter 2010)
