Wait Times at Brennan Park Aquatic Centre: What you need to know

Squamish Recreation Services Staff work to schedule the pool based on Lifeguard availability and according to anticipated community use now that drop-in pool access has resumed. 

Pool capacity on a typical weekday evening and weekend is between 100 to 150 people and customer wait times vary depending on peak days and times. Once the pool has been brought to capacity, a wait time of up to 90 minutes can be expected. Wait times are based on Lifeguard to swimmer ratios.

Squamish Recreation Services Staff and our team of Lifeguards assess pool capacity in 15-minute increments in order to determine how many additional swimmers may enter the pool, based on the number of lifeguards on the pool deck.

Lifeguard Swimmer Ratios

The District of Squamish adheres to capacity limits and Lifeguard-swimmer ratios set by Lifesaving Society Canada in order to maintain a safe level of supervision at the Brennan Park Aquatic Centre. Lifeguard ratios are determined by water surface areas and the number of recreational swimmers so that Lifeguards can supervise all areas of the pool that are accessible to bathers/swimmers during recreational swim periods.

Lifesaving Society Canada’s National Safety Standards are developed using Coroners’ recommendations, the latest evidence-based research, and reflect the aquatic industry’s best practices to prevent drownings and aquatic-related injuries in aquatic environments. The ratio of one Lifeguard for every 50 patrons (1:50) is the ratio determined by the Health Act, and is the recommended ratio set for our certifications through the Lifesaving Society.

Squamish Recreation Services offers Lifeguard certification programs to ensure local access to a qualified, consistent Lifeguard base necessary in order maintain the minimum 1:50 Lifeguard to bather requirement.
