During Summer Camp and Bronte Creek Project days of operation, those not affiliated with said programs are to refrain from going onto the main (Northern) hill where these programs take place.

Anyone making use of the swimming pool and/or splash pad does so at their own risk, and must adhere to all posted rules. Alcoholic beverages and glass containers of any kind are restricted in the pool area.

Built in 2004, the pool has become one of the property’s most popular attractions, particularly during the hot and hazy days of summer.

During operating months, the pool and Splash Pad are open from morning until nightfall. Being a Class B facility, the pool is unsupervised outside of Summer Camp swimming hours, and all swimmers use it at their own risk. Swimmers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a responsible adult at all times. Alcoholic beverages and glass containers of any kind are not permitted in the pool and splash pad area. Swimmers must adhere to all posted rules or risk immediate ejection from the pool area and possibly further consequences. 

During summer, the Children’s Summer Camp will have priority use of the pool during regular posted hours and on occasion outside of those times as needed. Other swimmers will be asked to exit the pool during camp use.

Private groups wishing to make use of the pool facilities will be asked to pay a nominal fee per user, and shall be responsible for providing a lifeguard at their own expense.
