On April 6, 2021, the Government of Alberta announced a partial return to Stage 1. As such, the Aquatic Centre has cancelled the Water Walking and Stretch Therapy programs. At this time the Aquatic Centre is only open for high school groups and Junior Lifeguard Club practices until further notice.

Learn more about the Province's enhanced measures here.

We will continue to monitor the situation while reviewing guidance from the Province. As we understand how these measures affect City facilities, updated information will continue to be provided on our website and through social media.


We will continue to enforce our "no check in until five minutes before your swim" policy. This will mean that we will no longer be allowing anyone into the lobby until five minutes prior to their booked swim. Anyone that arrives early to their program will need to wait outside or in their vehicle until otherwise directed by staff.

Please also read about the Mandatory Face Covering Bylaw as this will also be strictly enforced at the Aquatic Centre and any person not wearing a mask will not be allowed into the building.

Change Room Rules

In order to allow for physical distancing and enhanced sanitization, we've had to implement the following new COVID-19 protocols:

  1. Arrive to the Aquatic Centre with your swim suit under your clothes and check in at the front desk.
  2. Remove shoes and proceed directly to the pool deck.
  3. On the pool deck, remove your outside clothes (with your swim suit underneath) and place your clothes in your bag and shoes on a shelf on deck. We strongly recommend that you leave your valuables at home. Lockers are currently unavailable for use.
  4. Rinse off in the pool deck shower and then enjoy your swim!
  5. At the end of your swim time, staff will provide instructions for swimmers to exit the pool in two shifts to minimize the number of people in the change rooms at one time.
  6. Quickly rinse off after your swim, change, and exit. Personal grooming will not be permitted at this time (full showers with products, shaving, hair styling, etc.)

Please note that all of the above is based on the Alberta government regulations, if there are any changes to the regulations that affect the activities the Aquatic Centre is offering, we must comply.
