Aquatics

Delta's indoor and outdoor aquatic facilities are great places to learn to swim, to get and stay in shape, to have some fun or to volunteer/work at. 

Indoor

Outdoor

Delta has two outdoor pools. Our pools are staffed by creative and fun-loving lifeguards who ensure everyone has a great time while staying active and safe in the water. The North Delta Outdoor Pool will be open for public swims on Sundays from 12-5 pm starting May 22 and Saturdays from 12-5 pm starting June 4. Check out the new family-friendly change rooms!  Admission to the outdoor pools is free on weekends, and regular operating hours begin in July.

Stay Safe

Please be aware of the following guidelines and pool etiquette: 

  • Children under the age of seven must be within arm's reach of an adult (16+ years) at all times. 
  • Outside shoes are not allowed on the pool deck; they can track dirt and germs which contaminate the pool. Please go barefoot or wear non-slip footwear when on the pool deck. 
  • Always remember to walk on the deck. Do not run.
  • Health regulations require that everyone take a cleansing shower using soap before entering the pool or swirl pool areas.
  • Diving is permitted in the deep end of the main/sunshine pools only.
  • If an injury occurs at the pool, report it to the lifeguard staff right away.
  • In an emergency, follow the directions of the lifeguard staff.
  • For health and safety, please do not go into the pool if you have an illness, head cold, open sores or bandages, or an infection of the ears and/or eyes.
  • The family change rooms are very busy spaces. These rooms are for people with children of the opposite gender and their caregivers, and for people with disabilities. Please ensure that you remove your belongings from these spaces when not in use.

Get and Stay in Shape  

Your local aquatic centre is a great place to get and stay in shape! 

  • Attend a public swim session at your local aquatic centre.
  • Take a registered Aquafit program (such as pre- and post-natal aquafit) or try a variety of drop-in Aquafit classes, suitable for all levels of fitness.
  • Sign up for Aquatic Personal Training! Want to learn how to use equipment in the water before coming to a fitness class? Bored with regular length swimming and want to add water walking, running or Aquafit to your workout? We can set you up with one of our specialized instructors. 
  • Join a Water Walking Club, and have fun and workout at the same time. You don't need to be able to swim to enjoy the benefits of water. Water walking is a great aerobic and calorie burning workout. Check for days and times at the pool of your choice.
