Beat the heat at pools, splash parks

Beat the heat as the temperature rises again this week in the Comox Valley. From outdoor and indoor pools, and fun-filled splash park for kids, it’s time to get wet!

Indoor Swimming Pools

The Aquatic Centre is an ideal place for fun and fitness with a wave pool with two waterslides, an eight-lane, 25-metre pool, sauna, whirlpool, steam room and fitness studio. Full wheelchair accessibility, with beach entry access into the leisure wave pool, poolside lifts, hot tub, and family/disabled changing rooms.

The Comox Valley Sports Centre has a little something for everybody. It offers a six-lane, 25-metre pool, wellness centre, sauna and whirlpool — all wheelchair accessible.

Outdoor Swimming Pools

The Courtenay and District Memorial Pool, located in Lewis Park, is open June to August. It offers public swimming, early bird swim, length swimming, lessons, aquafit classes and rentals.

Splash Parks for Kids

Comox Rotary Splash Park first opened in the summer of 2017. It’s open from 10 a.m.–8 p.m., seven days a week, located in Comox Marina Park.

Courtenay Rotary Water Park features a recycled rubber tire surface, located at Lewis Park, next to the Lewis Centre and outdoor pool. Other nearby features include the wading pool and playground area.
