Radium Hot Springs pools are closed for repairs

Radium Hot Springs pools are currently closed for the safety of staff and visitors. This closure is anticipated to remain in place into spring 2020.

The Radium Hot Springs pools closed on January 11, 2020, after concerns were raised during construction about the structural integrity of the concrete floor in the hallway connecting the showers to the pool decks. Parks Canada is working to put a long term solution in place.

More information, including a reopening date, will be posted on our website as soon as it is available.
