Changes to BC's provincial health orders came into effect on April 23rd. Under the current rules, public pools, when not associated with an event, are allowed to continue to operate with a COVID-19 Safety plan.
What you need to know to plan your visit.
Parks Canada recognizes the health and wellness benefits of being outdoors and strives to provide an opportunity to recreate safely. Please be patient, respectful, and kind towards staff and other patrons.
These rules are in place for your safety:
Stay home if you have a runny nose, cough, fever or feel ill.
You must wear a mask in most parts of the building, including when you enter and exit. Masks are not required when in the water.
Alcohol and intoxicating substances are not permitted at the facility, including in the lineup.
Here is what you should expect:
Entry is first-come, first-served. Reservations are not available. We recommend limiting your visit to one to two hours.
Food is not permitted in the building or pools. A picnic area is available on the upper deck before or after your soak.
Dress appropriately for the weather. There is limited access to shelter while you wait. Please expect lengthy waits during peak times.
Rental swimsuits are not available. Towels may be purchased at the reception desk.
Capacity is limited to enable physical distancing.
Pool side picnic areas, slides, diving boards and lounge chairs are closed or not available. Personal chairs are not permitted.
Your safety and the safety of Parks Canada staff is our first priority. To ensure your safety and comply with public health guidelines, we have adjusted our operation.
