Fun Swim

Open to all ages and abilities, this swim offers fun-packed activities for everyone. Take a ride down the area’s largest indoor water slide, enjoy the water features in the leisure pool, or relax in our therapy pool featuring soothing jets and warm water. A Poolpod platform lift is available in the leisure pool, and accessible ramp with waterwheel chairs are available in the therapy pool. Water wings, lifejackets, and noodles are available for use.

Please note:

  • Swimmers age 15 and under are required to wear wrist bands for Fun Swims. Take a look at our helpful poster for more information on wrist bands and ratios. 
  • Children under 10 must be supervised in the water by an adult age 16+ (maximum of 3 children to one adult).
  • Swimmers must be 42” tall and are required to pass swim test to use the slide.
  • The maximum capacity for this swim is 175 (therapy pool 44 persons max); access cannot be guaranteed if capacity is met. As swim passes provide admission to the entire aquatic centre, passes will not be refunded if the therapy pool is at capacity and access is not granted.

Cost: $5 per one adult & toddler, $5 for every additional adult.

When scheduled in the leisure pool, one lane is dedicated for lap swimming, while the rest of the pool is open for leisure activities. When scheduled in the therapy pool, the pool is open for leisure activities, with the swirl available.
