This facility is 82 feet long and 28 feet wide. The shallow end (20 x 28 feet) is only 2 1/2 feet deep. The pool then slopes down to a depth of 5 1/2 feet over the next 20 feet. The deep end (42 x 28 feet) is 5 1/2 feet deep. The pool is heated and a comfortable temperature will be maintained. Due to the depth of the pool, diving will not be taught or allowed. A complete schedule of instruction using the Life Saving Society swimming program will be offered. Parents will be required to be in the water with children in beginning levels as instruction must be given from the deck to meet public health guidelines.

Bubble Family rentals are available at a reduced rate from past summer's regular rentals and only available this summer to adhere to public health guidelines.
