Indoor Pool Schedule
Current Indoor Pool Schedule
We now have an activity based blocked time schedule for the Aquatic Centre. The Aquatic drop-in opportunities have been redesigned into blocks of time where complementary activities will be combined into the same blocks and other type of activities will be scheduled at a different time to improve the quality of the customer experience.
There are now lane swim, public swim and Aqua Fit blocks.
Activity Based Schedule FAQ - why the change?
Children 7 years of age and under must be actively supervised (in the water and within arm’s reach) by an individual 14 years of age or older. Maximum of 4 children to 1 supervisor.

Aquatic Centre FAQs
Why does a pool close unexpectedly?
Unfortunately, pools have to be closed in an untimely manner due to pool fouling. Health regulations require pools to be closed anywhere from 1 to 36 hours for the necessary disinfecting.
Why can't I wear my shoes in the change rooms or take my stroller out onto the pool deck?
For health and safety reasons outdoor footwear and strollers are not permitted on deck or in the change rooms. Shoe racks are provided at the change room entrance and the viewing area on deck. Strollers can be left in the "Stroller Parking Lot" and exchanged for 'pool' strollers, allowed on the deck and in the change rooms.
What time is public swimming?
Public swimming is offered at different times every day. Depending on the day and time, some or all pools may not be available due to swimming lessons and other aquatic programs. Refer to the Pool Schedule or speak with a Guest Services Representative to confirm times.
Do my kids need supervision in the Aquatic Centre?
- 0 - 7 years of age: need supervision (Maximum of 4 children to 1 supervisor)
- 8 years of age and older: does not need to be accompanied
Can my teenager participate in aquatic fitness programs?
All drop-in and registered aquatic fitness program participants must be at least 14 years of age unless otherwise noted.
I forgot my towel / swim diaper / bathing suit!
