Aquatic activities improve posture, flexibility, muscular endurance, strength and balance, reduce stress, provide social interaction, develop healthy lifestyles and are fun.

We encourage you to enjoy the benefits of aquatic activities. Whether you want to swim laps, participate in an aquasize or aerobics class, work out in the gym or simply cool off and relax, Richmond’s aquatic facilities have it all for you.

Richmond Aquatic Services operates four facilities; two of which are indoor facilities operating year round, and two are outdoor seasonal pools.

Sensory Friendly Swims

Sensory Swim

Are you someone - or do you know someone - who experiences sensory sensitivity and enjoys a quiet swim? These new inclusive swims are available for individuals who are on the autism spectrum, have anxiety or sensory sensitivity and families wanting a supportive environment with reduced noise. Some of the unique features of these sessions are:

• no background music, noisy equipment and whistles (except for emergencies)
• a quiet room
• turning off features, noisy toys and hair dryers
• notifications to let people know what to expect when attending this session

Swims are 90 minutes on the last Sunday of each month from 8:00 to 9:30am. See Schedules for details.
