Outdoor Pools

Some Rules Have Changed! Review the following before arriving at a facility:


NEW: Lane Swim

Under Step 3 of the Roadmap to Reopen, the capacity of lengths swims can be safely increased at all City of Hamilton Pools. Starting July 26, all length swims will be offered with four (4) reserved spaces per double lane, or two (2) per single lane if double lane is not available. View lane swimming graphic (PDF, 527 KB)

  • All swimmers must maintain 2m distance from others, except when passing in the water.
  • Swimmers can select any open lane upon arrival, up to four (4) per double lane.
  • Swimmers should swim in a circle with the double lane, allowing for as much distance between swimmers of opposite directions as possible.
  • Members of the same household are encouraged to share a lane.
  • Staff may ask swimmers to swim in a certain direction or in specific lanes to assist with physical distancing or activity flow.

NEW: Water Fitness Self-Directed Resources

Water Fit program participants are invited to try out the new self-standing resource now available at all pools. The self-directed resource guides swimmers through a workout from start to finish, including exercises as well as options to increase the difficulty based on personal fitness level. Please note availability is on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Group Water Fit programming is scheduled to return in Fall 2021.

Book Online

Pre-reservation is required for all programs. Reserve your spot 25 hours before program start.
