Aquatics Centre Frequently Asked Questions

Are there life jackets and floaties available? Can I bring my own?2023-10-19T11:35:36-02:30

Yes, we have a large variety of life jackets from toddler to adult. However if you have your own, you are more than welcome to bring it with you.  We do not have arm floaties, but you can bring those with you as well.

Can I bring pool floats?2023-10-19T11:36:00-02:30

Reasonably sized personal floats, including mermaid tales and flippers, are permitted during open swims. Please note that if a swim is at full capacity, the lifeguard may request you not use your float due to space limitations.

Do I need to sign up even if I’m just watching?2023-10-19T11:37:48-02:30

Yes, spectators are required to sign up just the same as someone who is swimming. The viewing area is located on the pool deck and since the lifeguard on duty is responsible for everyone on deck, they are included in the total head count. Please remember photo ID is still required for facility access even if just a spectator.

No, you must bring your own.

Do you provide towels?2023-10-19T11:39:02-02:30

You must bring all of your own shower supplies including towel, soap, shampoo, etc. as we do not provide them.

If I sign up for a swim and can’t make it, do I need to cancel?2023-10-19T11:37:21-02:30
