The Ruth Inch Memorial Pool (RIMP) has re-opened under specific guidelines and with additional public safety measures in place as approved by the Chief Public Health Officer (CPHO). The main pool and hot tub facilities will be available for use. 

Regular pool operating hours will continue at this time with staff monitoring the water every hour, and sanitizing all touchpoints and surfaces several times a day. We ask residents who become ill to stay home and look after themselves and encourage those you know are sick to do the same.  

New COVID-19 safety regulations will ask patrons to preregister for a swim event.  New Swims open on the website at 8am each day for the following week. Please check online for vacant spaces in swims, walk ins will be given any empty spaces in the order they arrive in.  Phone numbers will not be taken or kept in case of cancellation.

How to browse tickets (to book a spot)
