    Trico Centre has a wonderful Aquatics Facility which includes a wave pool, waterslide, steam rooms (currently unavailable), and hot tub. The aquatics area was recently refurbished with a soft-walk cushioned Myrtha pool liner, brand new hot tub, acoustic ceiling clouds, energy-efficient LED lighting, and new sound system.

    In 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2018, the Lifesaving Society awarded Trico Centre's Aquatics Department with the Anne Resek Swim for Life Award for being the one-pool indoor facility that conducted the most Swim for Life swimming lessons in a calendar year.

     

    Trico Centre's pool has a lot of unique features, including:

    • extra warm water (29 degrees)
    • WAVES (check the Aquatics Schedule to see when waves are on)
    • beachfront entry (great for kids and those with mobility issues)
    • 316 ft. indoor waterslide with it's own easy exit point. No scary plunges into the deep end!
    • wheelchair accessible (the pool has a ramp/beachfront entry, and our hot tub has a wheelchair and lift)
    • tot area with lots of toys
    • rain curtain (it "rains" in the pool)
    • drop-in swim times (see Aquatics Schedule, reserving your spot is now required)
    • swim specials (Early Bird, Parent & Tot, Last Hour, Family Fun Swim Night: Aquatics Schedule, pre-book is now required )
