Pool Rental Cost:

$43.48 + $6.52 tax = $50.00 + $11.20 (1 lifeguard) = $61.20

                               = $50.00 + $22.40 ( 2 lifeguards) = $72.40

If you wish to use the Sherose Island Recreation Centre before or after the swim, for a birthday party, it will cost $26.09 + $3.91 = $30. The Aquatic staff will make the arrangements.
