Ruth Inch Memorial Pool


boy board thumbs up


The Ruth Inch Memorial Pool is a bright, warm and welcoming place to exercise, learn (Red Cross and Lifesaving Society programs available), and play. The main pool beach access and hot tub lift allow accessibility for all abilities and ages. The steam room and whirlpool are the perfect place to relax after your workout or long day. The facility also has a large outdoor deck with a BBQ and picnic tables that overlooks Frame Lake, providing a premier rental opportunity for private functions!

We take great pride in our clean, safe building and our friendly and qualified staff. We want to ensure that you have the best possible experience while you visit. Help us keep a safe, fun and healthy environment for everyone by following the facility guidelines and respecting other visitors and our staff. Your courtesy and cooperation will encourage others to do the same.
