With so many different options at Saanich’s two pools, you can do something different just about every visit.

Summer is for swimming with Saanich Recreation!

From family-friendly fun to serious workouts, your Access Pass is your ticket to swim

Your Access Pass is your key to staying fit and having fun this summer at Saanich’s two swimming pools!

“There are so many different options at Saanich’s two pools that you can do something different every visit,” says Aquatic Programmer Heather Belecky. “It’s really a great opportunity for families to come be active and have fun together.”

Here’s a look at why this summer is the time to make a splash at your community pool:

  1. So many swim times: With your Access Pass in hand, you can take in everything from daily Family Fun Swims to drop-in Waterfit sessions, or follow your lap swim or gym workout with a soak in the hot tub. No matter what your summer schedule, there’s likely a swim time for you!
  2. So much fun: Both Saanich Commonwealth Place and Gordon Head have their own unique features that are a blast to experience, Heather says. In addition to the wave pool, water slide and diving boards, one of the most popular Fun Swim features at SCP is the Rodeo inflatable. Over at Gordon Head, the climbing wall adds an extra challenge, while young swimmers love taking on friends on the “Gladiator” inflatable. And with the children’s summer swim pass – just $35 – they can have fun with friends all summer long!
  3. Stay fit out of the sun: While we all want to spend time outside when summer arrives, hot temperatures aren’t always great for working out. Head to the climate-controlled comfort of the pool for laps, use your Access Pass to drop in to a Waterfit class, try some low-impact water walking or water jogging, or boost your resistance training by walking against the current in Gordon Head’s lazy river.
  4. Safety first: For young swimmers, Saanich’s pools are safe places to get their feet wet around the water. Not only can they choose from a wide variety of summer swim lessons taught by certified instructors, they drop in later to practice what they learn under the watchful eye of well-trained, certified lifeguards.
