  • Deep end swimmers: All swimmers must pass the swim test to enter the deep end. Swimmers of any age may be asked to complete the swim test at the discretion of the lifeguards.

To pass the swim test, swimmers must be able to comfortably perform a recognizable stroke on their front for a minimum of 15 meters with the ability to put their face in the water and take at least one (1) breath without putting their feet on the bottom of the pool.

Children ages 7-9 who successfully complete the test, or have completed Level H, will receive a Swim Test Card. Swim test cards must be presented prior to admission to a recreational swim.

Forgot your Swim Test Card? You will be required to complete another swim test.

Weather policy

For your safety, we close the pool if any of the following conditions occur: 

  1. Temperatures drops below 15°C
  2. There is heavy rainfall
  3. We see lightning or hear thunder (we must wait 20 minutes to re-admit following the last sighting). 
If in doubt give us a call to make sure we are open!
