Community Pool

The Deep River Community Pool is an adjoining wing of Mackenzie Community School. It is 25 metres long and 13.5 metres wide (six racing lanes). The spectator bleachers accommodate up to 200 people. 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.

The Deep River Community Pool hosts a number of Leadership and First Aid programs in addition to aquatic activities, including the Aquatic Exercise Programs. This information will be updated soon. 

Yearly and 6 Month Memberships are available at this time.

Swimming Lessons are offered at the Deep River Community Pool in the Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer. Registration is available on-line and in person at the Deep River Town Hall.

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  implemented the Lifesaving Society learn to swim program.
