We are excited to announce that our Quiet Hour Swims pilot at our PINES pool will be ongoing, with us hosting a Quiet Hour every Saturday from 10am to 11am.
During “Quiet Hour” Swim hour, we will provide a low-stimulation aquatic environment.
Several key measures will be implemented to ensure a peaceful and accommodating experience at the pool, including:
– We will not be playing music or making unnecessary announcements over the speaker system.
– We will be speaking to patrons as they enter the facility to ensure they are aware of the Quiet Hour Swim, and to ask them to be mindful of noise levels.
– We will be managing Centre bookings of user groups in an effort to manage entrances during Quiet Hour Swims.
– As always, our PINES team will be ready to support all patrons that attend the Centre during Quiet Hour Swims.
The Centre will remain open to the public and everyone is welcome, but we ask if you are attending during that time slot that you please be mindful of noise levels. We want to provide a calm and sensory friendly environment and appreciate everyone’s support and cooperation in achieving this.
