A sauna is also available. In addition, there is an upstairs viewing gallery and medium sized meeting room appropriate for ballet and socials. The annual pool shutdown takes place during a 3 week period in August.

Early this year the Red Cross announced that after 75 years providing Water Safety programming, they will be winding down their involvement in the swimming and water safety program to direct more attention to surging humanitarian demands in other areas – such as disaster and pandemic response, opioid harm reduction and caregiving for seniors.    

As of September 2022, the Town of Deep River will be implementing the Lifesaving Society learn to swim program.

We will continue to offer Family Swimming Lessons.  Family lessons are geared for a parent(s) to be in the water with up to 2-3 children with a maximum number of 4 people being in the family pod.  The instructor will teach multiple levels if required. 

We ask that the parent register for the family lesson under “Swimming Lessons”.  When you register, you will be prompted to list your children’s names.  It would also be helpful if you indicate their swim level.  If you have questions, please contact the pool at 613-584-2000 ext. 181.

Programming will follow safety guidelines from the Lifesaving Society, Red Cross and Renfrew County Public Health.
