Administrative history

The Rossland Swimming Pool Society was formed in 1932 to offset the lack of natural aquatic facilities in a mountain city. Donations of volunteer labour and supplies resulted in the opening of the pool by August of that year. The swimming pool is presently operated by the City of Rossland.
