About our Swims

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. Waterwings, 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 persons (therapy pool 48 persons); 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.
Lane Swim
This swim for ages 12+ is offered 7 days a week. The leisure pool is divided into 3 lanes with lap signs indicating where to swim based on speed and ability. Our Poolpod platform lift is available, and equipment such as flutterboards and pull buoys are provided.

What to wear

Health and Safety regulations state that street clothes are not permitted in public pools. Swimmers are welcome to wear swimwear and different types of cover up options to swim comfortably. Your cover up clothing should only be worn for swimming just like your bathing suit. We recommend these items be made of spandex material. Here are some helpful examples:

Appropriate Swimwear 

Bathing suits such as bikinis, swim shorts, one-piece suits and burkinis are all great options for comfortable swimming.

appripriate swim wear includes bathing suits, bathing trunks, bikinis, and burkinis

Appropriate Cover Ups

Wearing spandex long sleeve shirts, tights, t-shirts, or fitness shorts are appropriate and safe ways to cover up while swimming. We do not recommend loose fitting clothing as they can become heavy in the water.

appropriate covers includes spandex tshirts, tights, and shorts

Inappropriate Swimwear

Clothing that is not considered appropriate swimwear are undergarments, street clothes, or spandex that was worn for another purpose, such as working out right before swimming. All swimwear and cover ups should be clean when entering the pool.
