In an effort to promote our outdoor pools, we recently launched a campaign with Oakville Kids that offers a free swim for up to four people in one of our outdoor pools.
Please note: The original ad must be presented at the outdoor pool for free admission. Printed and online versions will not be accepted. One pass for up to four people.
The physical properties of water such as resistance, buoyancy and warmer temperatures create an interesting alternative to land fitness. Water exercising exerts less impact on lower joints and is suitable for swimmers and non-swimmers, men and women. Waterfit classes take participants through a warm-up, aerobic activities, muscle conditioning and a cool down, all in an aquatic environment.
