Public Swimming and Waterfit

We offer drop-in programs, including public swimming opportunities and water-based fitness classes, in five indoor pools year-round and five outdoor pools during the summer only.

All public swims are subject to admission rules and capacity restrictions.

Please note: Private lessons are NOT allowed during recreational swim times. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Enjoy public swimming and group fitness classes in one of our pools! Pay-as-you-go or save with a pass, including our Full Fitness membership, three-month and annual Swim/Skate passes and more for adults, youth, seniors, and families

Waterfit classes include a warm-up, aerobic activities, muscle conditioning and a cool down, all in an aquatic environment. Exercising in water exerts less impact on lower joints and is suitable for swimmers and non-swimmers alike.

Build-your-own Pool Parties are also available when a room is available. Visit the Birthday Parties page for more information about these and other pool party options.

    • Clothing should be light weight fabric and free from rips/tears, rivets, dangling strings, denim and zippers.
    • Bottoms must cover the buttocks area and must not be see-through.
    • Bring clean flip flops or sandals to wear on the pool deck. Street shoes are not permitted on the pool deck.
  • 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.
  • Ensure children who are not toilet trained wear swim diapers made for swimming. These are available for purchase at the customer service desk.
  • Dress in suitable bathing or clean outdoor attire and pay the posted admission fee before entering the pool deck area.
