Aquatic Centre

NOTICE: the aquatic centre is closed for maintenance April 1 to 7. The pools will reopen April 8 at 6 am.

Aquatic Centre

The aquatic centre boasts two pools: a 20m leisure pool with three lanes, and a large shallow therapy with therapeutic jets and seating.

At 20 metres in length and boasting three lanes, the leisure pool has an accessible chair lift, Peterborough's largest indoor water slide, and water features. The pool is used for public swims, lane swims, fitness classes, swimming lessons, birthday parties, and day camps. 

The therapy pool is a shallow pool with a wheelchair ramp and swirl pool. This pool is used for fitness classes, swimming lessons, public swims, nursery swims, and birthday parties. 

The leisure pool capacity is 174 persons, and the therapy pool capacity is 48 persons. Patrons are advised that if capacity is reached, access cannot be guaranteed.

 

NEW Pool Pod Accessible Pool Lift

The Centre was recently selected as one of nine inaugural Canadian Tire Jumpstart accessibility grant recipients to receive $50,000 to support the purchase and installation of a Pool Pod portable accessible pool lift.

Intended to reduce barriers to aquatic activities for those with physical or mobility challenges, the Pool Pod will offer independent access to the leisure pool, and more efficient access to the Centre's recreational and therapeutic services for a greater number of people in a shorter period of time.
