Masks are optional in public spaces. Please be respectful of each other's comfort levels.
Britannia Pool is an indoor pool located in the Britannia Community Centre — just off Commercial Drive west of the Napier Greenway. Our pool is for all ages and swimming levels with a separate kids' pool for children aged four months to eight years old who are accompanied by an adult.
Register online for Aquafit sessions
Online registration for most swim sessions are no longer required. Advanced online registration for Aquafit sessions are still available and highly recommended to secure a spot. A limited number of Aquafit drop-in spots are available in person, on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Registration opens three days in advance, and closes 30 minutes before the session starts. If you are unable to attend a session for which you have registered, you must cancel in advance by accessing your vanrec.ca account.
Flexipasses and 10-visit passes are accepted for online registration.
Register online for swimming lessons
Swimming lessons are offered for pre-school, children and youth age groups. Infant, toddler, and adult lessons are not available at this time.
We are working with our partners to renew and revitalize Britannia Community Services Centre and the larger Britannia site.
