Low to zero impact is easy on bones and joints. Enjoy a 1-hour class set to music. Work at your own pace, no swimming skills required. Deep Water Aquafit – The natural buoyancy of the water reduces the strain on your joints, bones and muscles by as much as 90 percent. Deep water running takes advantage of buoyancy, providing the same cardiovascular workout as if you were running on solid ground. Participants may choose to use a buoyancy belt which suspends you, while still giving your whole body a total workout. Stretch ‘n Move – This class is perfect for seniors, people recovering from an injury, people with restricted mobility or those simply looking for light exercise. This fun class focuses on improving flexibility and mobility. Red Cross Swimming Lessons – Canada’s largest and most recognized swimming and water safety program. With an emphasis on swimming skills, water safety, and fitness activities, Red Cross Swim sets the foundation for a lifetime of swimming and fitness. Lane Swim – A time set aside for swimming lengths of the pool.

Please Note: Portions of the pools may be used by aquatic user groups, scheduled for swimming lessons or closed for special events. Swimming times change regularly according to pool programming.
