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 every day. Depending on the day and time, some pools may not be available due to rentals, 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!
The West Guest Services desk provides a tuck shop carrying your swimming needs (while supplies last). Goggles, nose clips, swim caps, swim diapers, towels and a limited stock of bathing suits can be purchased.  Baby boats are available for free on deck, please just see a Lifeguard.
