Harrison Park Pool Policy

Safety is extremely important to us, please review the Harrison Pool Admission Requirements prior to visiting:

  • Swimmers must be 10 years old to swim by themselves.
  • Swimmers who are 6-9 years old:
    • Must pass the swim test to swim by themselves (see Lifeguard for swim test requirements) OR can be accompanied in the water and directly supervised within arms’ reach by a parent or guardian who is 14 years of age or older with the following ratios of supervisors to swimmers: 1 supervisor to 4 swimmers not wearing lifejackets; 1 supervisor to 8 swimmers wearing lifejackets
    • Swim Test: Must be able to swim two widths of the pool using proper front crawl or breaststroke without stopping in order to swim unaccompanied during public or free swims.
  • Swimmers who are 0-5 years old:
    • Must be accompanied in the water and directly supervised within arms’ reach at all times by a parent or guardian 14 years of age or older regardless of swimming ability (1 supervisor to 2 swimmers). When accompanying children in the pool, we ask that you stay close to them. The Lifesaving Society of Canada says…“If you’re not within arm’s length, you’ve gone too far!” Our Lifeguards do enforce this policy for your safety.

Medical Conditions
Those with serious medical conditions should be accompanied by an individual who is knowledgeable of their condition and responsible for their direct supervision. Your medical doctor should be consulted before swimming. Please advise the Lifeguards or Instructors of any medical conditions you are aware of. If you have medication such as Epi-pen or asthma inhaler, please bring it on the pool deck with you.
