Users are asked to be mindful of their time in the pool to ensure everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the facility, as there is limited space.

With hot temperatures in the forecast, residents and visitors are reminded to take steps to stay safe in the heat:

  • drink water regularly even before you feel thirsty, and
  • regularly reapply sunscreen.
