District of Elkford 2022 Fall Pool Schedule

Pool Schedule & Scheduled Swims

  • Parent & Tot + Lane Swimming: A quiet swim, perfect for parents/guardians of babies and toddlers (from the ages of infant to six years old) to enjoy the shallow end and beach area, while others partake in swimming laps in the deep end.
  • Family Swimming: A swim specifically for families to enjoy time together. A parent or guardian is required to be always in the water and within arms’ reach with their children.
  • Public Swimming: The liveliest of our scheduled swims! Everyone is welcome! Children under the age of six require a guardian in the water and within arms’ reach with them.
  • Within arms’ reach: All children ages six and under are required to be within arms’ reach of a parent/guardian, regardless of swimming abilities. Lifejackets are encouraged, but do not replace the rule that children must be supervised.
  • Private Rentals: Available for occasions such as birthday parties and rehabilitation with a private specialist. Please contact us at 250.865.4012 or pool@elkford.ca for more information about private rentals!
