Facility and lap lane availability

PLEASE CHECK THE HOME PAGE FOR OPENING HOURS THEY MAY VARY IF AIR QUALITY DETERIORATES.

NOTE: Lap lane availability will be affected due to school swimming carnivals from the 06 February.  A full calendar of Lane Availability will be available from 30 January 2020.

Regular Pool Availability

We currently have good access to lap swimming lanes.  Unless we have an unplanned closure we have access to lap swimming at all times.  Note that in times of high pool loading we need to reduce the number or lap lanes to provide safe public free swimming space.

Pool Availability Feb/March 2020

During February and March Dickson Aquatic Centre is host to 29 school swimming carnivals.  At certain times lap swimming is unavailable.

A full timetable including carnival closures will be available in January.

We appreciate your patience while we provide the opportunity to school children in ACT and the surrounding region to participate in their school swimming carnival.

IMPORTANT

* Our Pool Availability Timetable below reflects our regular program bookings.  It is subject to change without notice.

* We make every effort to ensure that there is ample lap swimming space available, however the safety of patrons free swimming takes priority over increasing the number of lanes available.

Best time for lap swimming during the school holiday period is from 6am – 9am on weekdays and 8am – 10am on weekends.  Given there are no school holiday swimming programs running, there will be generous lap swimming lanes provided at most times.

Note that priority is given to ensuring that there is space for safe free swimming in the 50m pool.  This will significantly reduce the number of lap lanes available at times of high loading.

Note that from 06 February school swimming carnivals will affect lane availability during school hours.  A full list of availability will be available by the 30 January 2020.
