Each has a steam room but does not have private change areas.  Do not use the washroom stalls to change in. If you would like additional privacy please use the cubicles in the youth or family change rooms. 
     
  • When using the benches in our change rooms, please at all times be sure to sit on a towel - no bare bottoms on the benches please! On behalf of all users of our facility we also ask that you do not use this public space to take care of personal hygiene tasks such as shaving, foot and nail care, etc.  These are best done in private, at home.
     
Scent Aware Facility
  • People are often sensitive to the chemicals in many body products such as perfume, aerosol deodorants such as Axe, hair spray, shampoo/conditioner/body wash, cologne etc.  Exposure can cause nausea, headaches, dizziness and more with varying degrees of severity. 
     
  • For this reason all visitors to the facility are asked to refrain from applying or wearing chemically scented items to the Health, Fitness & Aquatics facility.  Be aware of ingredients in your products and pack your gym bag fragrance free.
