Hours for 2022 Season
The Hanna Pool is transitioning from Red Cross lessons to Lifesaving Society lessons starting in the 2022 season. The Canadian Red Cross is winding down its Swimming and Water Safety to focus on surging humanitarian demands in other areas.
The two organizations have been working together to support our programs and provide transition or conversion information. Please consult the chart found on this page and found inside the 2022 Lesson Registration Package to identify the level to register in.
Also changing this season is the way lesson registration is held. To make is easier, forms can be completed and submitted in advance starting May 2 at the pool office. The pool office will be open and the pool manager available Mon-Fri the first two weeks of May from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm each weekday.
Payment must be received to be considered registered. Once payment and documents are completed and submitted, registrants will receive a confirmation directly from pool staff within 2 business days.

How can I register for swimming lessons?
Registration begins before the pool opens. Be sure to watch the website, the Hanna Herald, social media and if you want to be notified beforehand, please sign up for our e-News. Registration can always be accepted throughout season.
Do I pay for my five year old child?
No, rates begin at age 6.
Where do I find the schedules?
Schedules, once they become available can be found on this page and picked up at the pool.
Why must I be at "arms reach" with my child?
Even though the Town of Hanna employs Lifeguards, they can’t be watching every child all the time. Your children are ultimately safer if you are nearby to help them in the event they need it.
My four year old swims like a fish! Way better than my 8 year old! Who decides if they can go in the pool without me? What age or skill level is used?
According to the National Lifesaving Society, any child 8 and under needs to be accompanied by someone 12 or older and within arms reach. Staff can administer a ‘swim test’ to assess if the child has the skills to be able to swim unassisted in the water. If the child, who is 8 or younger is successful, they still need to be accompanied but do not need to be within arms reach. Please consult with the pool staff for clarification.
I would like to be able to take my 5 year old grandson to the kiddie pool to play while I read my book in the shade of the covered benches. Do I have to pay?
Yes, you are still required to pay because you still need to be in the water within arms reach of your child. The size and abilities of the swimmer may allow a broader use of the pools. Lifeguards have the ability to assess the skills, abilities and comfort levels.
Located south of the Hanna pool and waterslide, the spray park is a brand new outdoor accessible space for residents of all ages to enjoy at no cost.
Colorful water features provide fun for all ages, and include:
- Rubberized flooring surrounds the splash pad connecting to the adjacent washrooms and shower.
- The super splash bucket fills and tips gallons of water every two minutes disbursing into a roaring waterfall.
- Two water tubes that shoot water
- An umbrella with cascading water to run through or stand under
- A leaning tower that sprays water outward using eight different nozzles
- Water blooms that spray different levels of water from the floor
- Jet streams that spray up to 3′ hight
- An area designed specifically with little people in mind. The area includes a pot that fills and spills gently into trays allowing the water to cascade as well as a small gentle jet stream.
- When not in use the water features become dormant but when someone wants to play, the features are activated with the touch of a hand.
Construction o the Hanna Spray Park was a combined effort between a committee of dedicated resident volunteers, the Town of Hanna, Special Areas #2, and the Province of Alberta’s Community Facility Enhancement Program.
