Pool Rentals/Bookings & Rates

The pool is available for exclusive rentals and private bookings. The entire 50 m pool, or portions of the pool, are available for rental during the day, before and after regular operating hours, evenings, and weekends.

Frequent private users include: schools, colleges, corporations, churches, community groups, and individual parties.

The facility set-up can be customized to suit the individual or group's needs. It is equipped with a hydraulic floor which raises or lowers the depth in the shallow end from 0 to 1.22 m (4 feet) and depths in-between—perfect for weaker swimmers, pre-schoolers and those who just wish to use shallower water. Pool toys and some lifejackets are supplied.

Deep water for strong swimmers and an array of diving equipment, including 1-metre & 3-metre springboards and 5-metre platform, are available. The Tarzan rope is one of the highlight features of the deep end.

Water temperature is a pleasant 28° C (82° F). The hot tub, also situated on the pool deck, can be made available as an extra service to complement guest amentities.

With an available capacity of over 500 swimmers, our guests' safety and comfort are carefully monitored by our team of highly certified and experienced lifeguards and instructors.

The Eleanor Misener Aquatic Centre offers space for fitness swims (lengths), fun and leisure swims, and organized lessons taught by our certified instructors.

Family change room, men's and women's showers, saunas, and lockers are located adjacent to the pool.
