Trico Centre has a wonderful Aquatics Facility which includes a wave pool, waterslide, steam rooms, 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.
The schedule may be altered during long weekends, holidays, and school breaks. Check our facility schedules for details.
