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.

See the timetable below for our regular pool bookings. 

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.
