Recreational Swims

Tot Time

Designed specifically for children 5 years of age and younger with direct supervision of a responsible adult in the water and provides a fun and safe environment with a quiet atmosphere for our younger swimmers.

Adult Swim Lengths

A great way to exercise and get into shape. Swimmers must be at least 16 years of age and be able to swim 50 m (2 lengths) of the lap pool.

Aquafit

Instructed by certified lifeguards, this program allows adults to improve their flexibility, strength and cardiovascular fitness while enjoying the buoyancy of the water. It's aerobics without the stress on the joints. This is an effective workout for the legs, stomach, and upper body.

Family Swim

A great way to spend the afternoon lounging and playing in the sun. Swimmers may enjoy the use of the lap pool, tot pool, and spray features. Use of the slide may be purchased at an additional fee. All recreational swims are based upon pool capacity. All schedules are subject to change.
