Visit the pool

When you arrive, here's what to expect:

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
