Plan your visit

What you need to know before you arrive:

  • Buy your tickets online. Drop-in spaces are limited
  • Arrive in your clean swimwear. Change rooms are not available.
  • Leave all valuables at home. Lockers are not available.
  • Washrooms will be open. Masks are mandatory in the washrooms.
  • Merchandise and towel rentals are not available.
  • Kickboards are not available for rental, but patrons may bring their own.

Visit the pool

When you arrive, here's what to expect:

  • Stay 2 m apart from people who aren't in your household or social bubble.
  • Follow the signs to the new entrances.
  • Scan your ticket when you enter and put on the wristband provided.
  • Stay in your designated pod and follow the one-way signs when moving around the pool perimeter deck.
  • Shower on deck before entering the pool.
  • Keep 5 m apart from other people in the swimming lanes.
  • Follow the entrance and exit signs for the washrooms.
  • Exit the pool promptly at the end of your swim session. Re-entry is not permitted (except for using the washrooms at Second Beach).
  • Follow staff directions and ask for assistance if needed.

Customers who don't follow the rules and safety guidelines of the pool may be asked to leave without a refund or prevented from registering for future sessions.

COVID-19 safety measures

To encourage physical distancing, we are:

  • Reducing capacities in alignment with new protocols around decreased bathing loads
  • Creating timed swim sessions (45 minutes for length swimming and 90 minutes for general swimming)
  • Making swimming lanes for length swimming wider
  • Selling tickets online for swim sessions
  • Setting up one-way travel around the pool deck perimeter
  • Providing a pod (a painted rectangle) for up to two people on the pool deck to rest and sunbathe (preschoolers ages 0 to 4 are exempt)
  • Clearing and cleaning the pool after every 90 minute session
