Change room facilities are available for patrons using the pool. Due to provincial guidelines, the capacity of the change rooms is currently limited, so you may use the public or universal change rooms. Membership change rooms are available to members only, on a first come, first serve basis. There will be 30 minutes during each swim time slot for swimmers to get changed before and after swimming and to allow for cleaning. The sauna and whirlpools will remain closed.
