Sir Winston Churchill and Volunteer Pools

Churchill Community Pool and Volunteer Pool provide swimming opportunities for all ages. The City's Recreation & Culture Division operates these two indoor community-based swimming facilities in addition to the Canada Games Complex. These pools provide recreational public swims and structured swimming lessons. Every child deserves to learn how to swim, especially in a city surrounded by lakes! The best place to learn how to swim is in the water.
