Pool Rules
  • No running.
  • No diving (no flips) in all areas of the pool.
  • Weak swimmers should stay where they can touch.
    • To go past the first rope into the lanes you should complete Level 4 under the Red Cross Swim Kids or Level 3 under the Lifesaving Society’s SWIM. Both mean you can complete a 25 swim.
    • To go past the second rope into the deep tank you should complete Level 7 under the Red Cross Swim Kids or Level 5 under the Lifesaving Society’s SWIM. Both mean you efficiently support yourself in deep water without an aid or ledge to assist.
    • Completing a level does not guarantee access, lifeguards will judge swimmers abilities and advise them in how to stay safe.
  • Lifejackets are available to rent. Anyone wearing a lifejacket is a weak swimmer and needs to stay in the shallow, older kids should stay where they can touch if they really need a jacket.
  • Children 5 years and under must be within arm’s reach of an adult (16 years and over).
  • Waterslide
    • Ride feet first (not on your knees).
    • One at a time (rider ahead passes the Canadian Flag before your turn).
    • There is a height requirement of 1.3m (4’2”) marked on the wall. If your child does not meet the requirement you can either assist them going down or if they are old enough to catch them at the bottom of the slide as they exit.
