There will be minimal use of the change rooms; guests are required to come dressed for their activities and arrive no more than five minutes before their scheduled times.
The climbing wall, Tarzan rope, pool toys, and inflatables will not be available; patrons may bring their own pool toys, provided they are clean and can be disinfected. The hot tub will remain closed until Stage 3 of the Provincial relaunch plan.
