The Northern Lights Palace Pool and Arena is located at 110 MacLeod Avenue West.
The pool facility is a leisure pool with a wave generator, waterslide, hot tub, spray bar, dry sauna, and a zero depth entrance. The pool is open year round offering swimming lessons, Aquafitness, lane swimming, family swimming, public swimming and birthday parties.
The pool includes:
25 meters with 5 lanes (29oC)
Large beach and deck area
Family change room
Zero depth to 2.2m (7'4")
The Palace sports a zero depth entrance / exit. The design of the pool is very elegant and this is one of the best aspects of it. The shallow area ranges from 0 to 7.4 feet in the deep. The waves do not crash hard on the beach but rather move you up and down. This is much gentler for toddlers.
There are 2 tot pools protected from the waves. One closer to the changerooms and one that isolated from the rest of the pool when the spray bar is not in use.
The zero depth allows easier access for the elderly and the disable can be wheeled in with assistance on a rolling chair. An excellent addition to our wonderful facility
The City of Melfort boasts an amazing 620,000 liter wave pool. The pool is 25 meters wide in the center. It starts at zero depth increasing to 2.2 m deep. Ride the 24 inch waves in the deep, swim near the edge and have them toss you against the wall, or lay down on the beach as they wash up against you.
Definitely the favorite feature of the facility, the waves keep people coming back to Melfort from all corners of the province. Schools regularly book times, sports club wind-ups, seasonal parties, everyone is welcome to book a rental time at the pool.
The Northern Lights Palace boasts an impressive waterslide. The slide is 150 feet long and keeps people coming back just to go down the waterslide. With a quick drop at the start to give you some speed, a couple twists and turns, and another drop at the end as you splash to a finish.
It can give you enough speed if you lay down that you need the 4 feet of water in the exit pool to slow you down. Or if you are sitting up with a toddler on your lap you can slip easily into the water with a little practice.
Because of the exit pool being 1.2m (4’0”), there is a height requirement of 1.3m (4’2”) marked on the wall. If your child does not meet the requirement you can either assist them going down or if they are old enough to catch them at the bottom of the slide as they exit.
If you enjoy waterslides you will have a blast at the Palace.
Hot Tub / Whirlpool (40oC)
If you need to relieve a little tension, take a soak in our large whirlpool. The hot tub is 1.0m (3.3’) deep with a seating ledge surrounding the entire perimeter. There are jets around the outside for you to sit against for relief of you back muscles. Relaxing heat and muscle stimulation relieves physical burdens and brightens the spirits. All you have to do is step in.
Researchers have observed the healing effects of hydrotherapy: improved circulation, decreased joint pain, and acceleration of the body's natural healing processes. No scientific research is needed for these benefits, the way stress seems to release itself into the hot water.
Water is used in physiotherapy to speed recovery from injuries, relieve muscle soreness by facilitating the removal of lactic acid, open the blood vessels to improve circulation, help the muscles around arthritic joints relax, and promote the flow of endorphins.
Our whirlpool is kept at 40°C and seats 18 people. Warm your muscles before a workout, hop in and out on a long day of swimming, or some just come to unwind after a long day. Enjoy!
We have a full size cedar dry sauna for those who want to sweat. Sweating will clean out your pores and detoxify your body. The temperatures in a sauna are of the order of 60 to 80 degrees Celsius. The extreme heat can give you an increased heart rate and metabolism which can help lose weight. 20 minutes in a dry sauna will help you burn around 300 calories. This is about the same as going for a long walk or a short run. Benefits of a sauna include the expansion of your blood vessels and raising your internal temperature high enough (43°C) to burn fat.
Additional care should be taken if a swimmer has a history of low blood pressure. Children under the age of 12 are not allowed in the sauna for their safety.
All this at the only indoor wave pool in northeast Saskatchewan - a year round splash and fun destination. Plan a visit while you're in the area. It's an attraction not to be missed!
