Healthy swim etiquette

To reduce the risk of spreading germs and to keep our pools clean, please remember the following tips when enjoying our facilities:

  • Shower before you swim – Please shower with soap and warm water before entering or re-entering the pool deck. It's clean, it's green, it's the law!
  • Wear appropriate footwear – Bring clean flip flops or sandals to wear on the pool deck. No street shoes please.
  • Don't use the pool if you feel sick – Not feeling well? Swimmers should refrain from using the pool when ill, or if they have experienced diarrhea in the past week.
  • Prevent pool fouling – Please refrain from feeding children or eating large meals before swimming. All swimmers are encouraged to visit the washroom before entering the pool. Children that are not toilet trained must wear swim diapers made for swimming pool use. These are available for purchase in the pool office.
  • Wear appropriate clothing – Patrons on the pool deck must be dressed in suitable bathing attire and pay the posted admission fee.
  • Don't bring food onto the pool deck – Only water is permitted on the pool deck. Don't forget to bring your reusable drinking containers.
  • Don't bring strollers onto the pool deck – Strollers are not permitted on our sanitized decks. Parents and guardians are reminded that children should never be left unattended.

Information about the free swim coupon in Oakville Kids

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.

Waterfit

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.
