  • Regular Admission and Membership fees are in effect
  • Patrons are required to come dressed in swim attire, only those who require aquatics swim diapers will be allowed to change into their swim attire at the facility (i.e. infants). After their activity, patrons will promptly change and exit the building. This allows for staggered entry and exit from the facility, as well as the incorporation of enhanced cleaning practices in an efficient way. To accommodate this:
    • Patrons will check in at the front desk up to 15 minutes prior to their activity to make payment, answer applicable health screening questions, and receive a bin to place their belongings in.
    • The facility change spaces will all be universal – patrons will enter through universal change room #1 or #2 and exit through universal change room #3. Lockers will not be available for use at this time. All personal items will be stored in bins that are provided, on the pool deck in the designated area.
    • Upon exiting the activity or swim time, patrons may use the showers in universal change room #3 to rinse, however extended cleansing and grooming will be discouraged to allow for disinfection of change rooms prior to the next booking time.
  • Whirl Pool and Sauna remain closed for 2020. The possibility of opening these amenities will be reviewed in 2021.
