Outdoor Pools & Swimming Lessons

Recreation Programming - Aquatics

Our highest priority is keeping our participants and staff safe while they enjoy the use of our outdoor pools this summer. In this regard, we have made a number of changes to our swim schedule and swimming lessons. These changes will allow us to have additional time between programs for participant screening and to provide extra facility cleaning. In addition, due to staffing constraints, the Pools will be closed on Sundays this year.

*Arthur Pool closes Friday, August 27, 2021*

*Mount Forest Lion Roy Grant Pool closes Saturday, August 28, 2021*

Swimming Lessons:

The Township of Wellington North is offering semi-private and private swimming lessons for the summer of 2021. These will be available in blocks of five (5) or 10. As our guards are not allowed in the water to instruct, we will require that a responsible individual age 14+ be in the water with any child in level Swimmer 3 or under. We are anticipating a high interest in swimming lessons this year and will be registering participants on a first come, first served basis. If you are interested in booking semi-private or private lessons, please complete the Registration Form and submit to recreation@wellington-north.com. One of our team members will connect with you to confirm your space, or work with you identify dates and times that work with your schedule.
