The Region of Waterloo passed a bylaw requiring the wearing of face coverings in enclosed public spaces that is now in effect. You can learn more about the bylaw and what it means for you on the Region of Waterloo site.

Beginning Friday, Nov. 27, the Province has provided updated guidance on the limits for recreation facilities and community centres. These changes include:

  • Indoor capacity of 10 program participants per room/space, provided physical distancing can be maintained. 
  • Aquatics classes are limited to 10 participants per class. If physical distancing can be maintained and total pool capacity remains below 30%, more than one class may be in the pool at a time.

Read more about these and additional changes.

Idlewood Pool is closed for the season.  See you next Summer!

Idlewood Community Pool is Kitchener's best kept secret. This beautiful outdoor community pool, nestled in quiet green space is ready for you to explore. The pool features a lane area as well as a small slide and expansive shallow area ideal for young families. It is within walking distance from many Kitchener neighbourhoods, but also provides bike racks and extensive parking. 

All visitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied into the pool by an adult.

Regular admission policy applies.

Capacity for each family swim will be limited to the first 20 participants. In order to accommodate as many people as possible, new swimmers will be admitted first for each swim time. At the discretion of staff, the number of participants may be increased based on the distribution of swimmers in the pool and if doing so does not affect the ability of participants to physically distance.

Out of an abundance of caution we will not provide change room access, pool toys, and deck chairs.

Please follow the direction of the staff and respectfully adhere to physical distancing measures
