Stan Stronge Pool

Attached to Pearson is the Stan Stronge Pool. You may ask, who was Stan Stronge? He was a soccer player until he became paraplegic from a car accident at age 30. He turned to wheelchair sports and formed the first wheelchair basketball team. He later coached and managed many athletes with disabilities. In 1980 they named BCs first fully accessible pool after him. The Stan Stronge pool is a warm therapeutic pool with a wheelchair ramp and hoist which allows access to people with almost any physical disability. It is well used by people in the community as well as Pearson residents.
