What you need to know

In order to ensure public safety during this era of COVID-19, the number of people who are allowed in a pool is less than in years past. Physical distancing is necessary, so you will need to book a time to use the a pool at active.oakville.ca.

Change rooms are closed, so wear your swim suit. Washrooms remain open.

Hours of operation for recreational swimming is different at each location, but they typically open from the early afternoon and close in the early evening. During heat events the pools remain open later.

Admission is $4 for seniors and youth and $5 for adults,  paid online.

Lessons

Private lessons will be offered at Falgarwood Pool.

Aquatic Leadership Programs will be offered at Lion’s pool and Q.E. Park’s indoor pool.

Other options to beat the heat

There are other options to beat the heat this summer that do not require you to book a time slot, and are free. The Town of Oakville operates 19 splash pads which open at 10:00 AM and close at 9:00 PM.

You can also go swimming in Lake Ontario. Halton Region monitors water quality at Coronation Park and at Bronte Beach, and provides regular updates.
