Swimming Carnivals

Swimming carnivals are generally held at our pools in February and early March each year.

While swimming carnivals are happening at our pools, access will only be available for people attending the carnival.

Pools will also be unavailable immediately after the end of each carnival for clean up and pack up for the following amounts of time:

  • At least 30 minutes for half-day carnivals
  • At least 60 minutes for full-day carnivals.

If your favourite pool is closed for a carnival, see our pools page for other places to swim.
