You can register for programs one week in advance and up to 2 hours before a program starts. If you require technical support with the new registration system, check out the How To's on this page or reach out to Recreation staff by email at rec.booking@golden.ca or call the pool at 250-344-2118.

Here are the programs available at the Golden Swimming Pool the 2021 season:

Public Swim: Come on out with your household for some fun in the pool! Children under 7 must be accompanied by an adult 18+ at all times. 

Parent & Tot Swim: Join us for an instructor-led parent & tot (5 and under) swim including fun games and songs.

Aquafit: Enjoy a low-impact instructor-led exercise class featuring cardio, interval training and muscular endurance.

Private Lessons: We are offering private swimming lessons on Saturday and Sunday mornings throughout July. Registration opens July 23. Red Cross certified instructors will teach 1-3 children/adults (from the SAME household only). The instructor will do a swim assessment first lesson to evaluate swimming levels, and participants will receive a Red Cross Report card at the end of each session.

Please note for group and private lessons: a parent is required to go in the water with children under the age of 7 to esnure instructors can socially distance in the water.

Lane Swim: A dedicated swim time for lap swimming with 3 lanes available (SLOW, MEDIUM and FAST).

WIBIT: WIBIT Swims are back starting in July, every Friday and Saturday evening for the rest of summer! Regular rates apply, and pre-registration is required.
