The Bassano Swimming Pool will be open July 1, 2021 – August 30, 2021. Due to COVID-19 and public health orders, operations will look a bit different this year. Key changes to our facility operations are as follows:

  • All patrons MUST follow public health orders and are asked not to attend our facility if they are experiencing the following symptoms:
    • Fever
    • new onset of cough or worsening of chronic cough
    • new or worsening shortness of breath
    • new or worsening difficulty breathing
    • sore throat
    • runny nose
  • Anyone entering the facility MUST have their temperature checked and provide contact tracing information at the front desk.
  • A mask MUST be worn when inside the building.
  • Patrons MUST be 2 meters from each other unless they are from the same household or cohort.
  • Public Swim will be divided into three 1.5-hour blocks each day.
    • All patrons will be asked to leave the facility when the block ends.
    • Half an hour of cleaning will take place.
    • Anyone waiting outside will be allowed in for the next block.
  • As of June 18, 2021, patron capacity for public swimming is 70 persons. Once capacity is reached, remaining patrons must wait outside of the building until the next public swimming block.
  • The hot tube will remain closed this year due to physical distancing limitations. This enables us to focus on keeping the pool running.
  • Bassano Pool Staff reserve the right to remove uncooperative patrons from the facility.
  • All other water safety and pool rules apply.

We are looking forward to creating a safe and welcoming environment for all patrons and the community. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.


As recommended by Canadian Red Cross Swimming and Water Safety, the Sea Otter, Salamander, and Swim Kids levels 1-4 are now parented. A parent/guardian must enter the water to provide direct support to the participant during the swimming lesson. This means holding the participant, physically correcting the participant’s form, and having fun! Lesson capacity is limited to 4 participants for Sea Otter, Salamander, and Swim Kids levels 1-4 and 6 participants for Swim Kids levels 5-10 due to available pool space.

Due to limited capacity, the Aquafit program will now be offered by registration only. By purchasing a monthly pass, Aquafitter’s will be registered for 8 classes offered Mondays and Tuesdays – 7pm-8pm. Season memberships, punch cards, and drop-in fees do not apply to the Aquafit program.

All lessons/programs are first come first serve and registration is not complete without payment. Follow the steps below to complete registration for both swimming lessons and Aquafit.
