We are happy to announce that the pool is now open 7 days a week! To ensure the safety of our participants, capacity on all swims may be limited as we can only accommodate a certain number of people based off the number of lifeguards available. Please call 250-830-6777 to check availability.  

Please note, our steam room will be closed until further notice due to repairs.
