Drop-in Programs

To keep the public and our staff as safe as possible and reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission at Leisure Centres, drop-in programs are offered in timed sessions. This helps us manage capacity limits and  allow for necessary physical distancing. Sessions include entry and exit times and session breaks allow for cleaning and sanitization of common areas. The duration of your session will be shown when you book. 

The drop-in program schedule for each facility is available on Leisure Online (select the 'Book a Visit' option). At this time, programs offered include the following, depending on the facility:

  • Public, Lane and Parent & Tot Swimming  (No equipment or toys provided; bring your own.  There is 2 spot booking limit for lane swimming sessions and walk-in visits are not available for lane swimming sessions.)

Walk-in Spots: Drop-in Programs

Registered Programs

A limited selection of registered programs will be offered this spring. There are modifications required for many of our programs to ensure physical distancing and small group sizes – and because of that, programs may look a little different than in the past. This includes Red Cross swimming lessons which will follow the new Canadian Red Cross Safety Guidelines for swim lessons taking place during COVID-19; please read through these guidelines if you are considering or registering for lessons this season.

The Spring /Summer Leisure Guide is available online and program registration has started. Information will be added to the website regularly, so please continue to check back on and follow the City’s social media channels.

Know Before You Go!

Protect yourself and others from COVID-19 while using Leisure Centres by following these guidelines: 

  • Do not come to the facility if you are sick. Anyone displaying COVID-19 symptoms will not be permitted inside of the facility.
  • Effective November 27, Non-medical face masks are required when accessing all indoor City-operated facilities and services.  This includes while participating in physical activities with the exception of aquatics activities.

  • A greeter will be in place to check you in upon entering the facility and to direct you to where you need to go.

  • Bring your own water to drink.
  • Change rooms are available with a limited number of lockers available for use. The change rooms close periodically throughout the day for cleaning and sanitization requirements, which create longer than normal wait times.
