Recreational Swim

Located in the basement of Casgrain, the swimming pool is a six-lane, 25-meter chlorine system with a depth of 1.1 meters in the shallow end and 3.7 meters in the deep end. The pool is maintained at a warm 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit) and is equipped with a one-meter spring diving board.

Our recreational swim hours are open to people of all ages and abilities. During these hours there are three lanes in the pool to provide space for lap swimming and the remainder of the pool is open for “free” swim. Please note that the shallow end is closed from 20h00 – 21h00 on Monday and Wednesday and from 16h30 – 17h30 on Tuesday and Thursday for Aquafit classes when in session.

Please note: Lap swimming must happen in the lap lanes not outside the designated lap area. As well the Deep-end section will now vary between “Diving Board” and “Free Deep” every 15 minutes if the diving board is requested.
