Pre-registered Drop-in Fees

  • $1 for child/youth and senior
  • $2 per adult
  • $5 per family (group of 6; group of 4 for Family Swim)

Recreation drop-in fees have been temporarily reduced through the support of the City's Community Support and Recovery Program.

One Set at a Time

Swimming lesson participants can only be registered for one set of lessons at a time. You may register your child for the next set of lessons on the last day of the current set. 

Please note, your child will be withdrawn from a program(s) if registered in more than one lesson set, or if they are registered in future lesson sets prior to completing the set they are currently registered in.
