Are there any places in Calgary we can rent the whole pool in the winter time?

I'm not sure. I would check with the smaller pools like Inglewood.

Stumbled across this entry while trying to plan a birthday party for my own 7 year old step-daughter. It's been super useful. While Port O'Call doesn't do birthday parties anymore, it was great having all the links and information in one place. Thanks for putting it together.
