Wading Pools & Rec Swims

Dovercourt wading pool

New! Bubble Swims – in the indoor pool

Book our indoor pool for a private swim with those in your Family Bubble or Social Circle! As this is a group of no more than 10 people who you can interact with without social distancing, a max of 10 will be allowed in the pool and on the deck area. Regular swim ratios apply. All swimmers should arrive and leave in their swimsuits.

Wading pools will open for Summer 2020! 

Dovercourt operates three area wading pools: Westboro Kiwanis Park (at Dovercourt), Woodroffe (200 Lockhart Ave), and McKellar Park (539 Wavell Ave).

We have created a schedule for July; we may make changes for August based on new information from public health. We have developed new rules for this summer based on public health and Lifesaving Society guidelines.

Details:

  • We will open the pools starting Thursday July 9.
  • The wading pools will have a new capacity of 17 swimmers (25% of the old capacity of 70).
  • Clients will need to answer a COVID questionnaire before they swim.

  • There will be zones marked on the bottom of the pools where families will have to keep physical distance from each other. We are hoping for at least five families at a time, with a max of 20 minutes per family if we have a lineup.
  • Unfortunately, we won’t have pool toys (families can bring their own) or crafts this summer because of high-touch rates of those items.
  • Please note: bathrooms will not be available (to keep our staff safe).
  • Families will need to come and go in their swimming attire (no access to changerooms) but we are looking forward to returning to a slightly different normal.
