Squamish Recreation Services has updated its summer schedule to prioritize community demand and current pool use. View the Summer Schedule details below.

Summer Schedule

Squamish Recreation & Culture schedules the Brennan Park Recreation Centre pool based on safety guidelines and to accommodate the diverse needs of our community.

This summer, we prioritize different needs at different times for all ages and interests knowing that demand for pool access is at an all time high.

Our 2022 Summer Schedule offers opportunities to many different groups based on current staffing levels.

  • Weekday Early Bird (6-8 a.m.) – Swim Club & Lane Swim
  • Weekday Mornings – Swim Lessons
  • Weekday Mid-Afternoon – Public Swim & Lane Swim
  • Weekday Late-Afternoon – Swim Lesson and Swim Club
  • Weekday Evenings – Public Swim & Lane Swim
  • Weekends – Public Swim

The provincial shortage of Lifeguards and Swim Instructors impacts our ability to have as many people in the pool at one time as we did in the past. Once the Lifeguard to Patron ratio is reached, a wait time of up to 90 minutes could be expected (see “Lifeguard Swimmer Ratios” below).

Squamish Recreation Services offers all the courses you need to become certified to build our local base of Lifeguards. If you are interested in joining our team, we encourage you to reach out. Ask any of our amazing Lifeguards about it on your next visit.

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.

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. To learn more contact our Customer Service team at 604.898.3604.
