Glen W. Smith Community Pool
Scotia Pool Society is a volunteer organization that has operated Scotia Pool, a five-lane, 25 metre pool located in Bible Hill, since 1999. Indoor pools commonly exist as government-funded and maintained recreational facilities. We differ in that the pool, building and land are owned by the province but the operation, maintenance and up-keep are the responsibilities of the Scotia Pool Society. We are able to offer all levels of Red Cross swim instruction, lifeguard training and water safety instructor training. Also available are recreational, lane and family swims, parent and tot swims, and group rentals. Aqua therapy and Aqua fitness classes are a feature at Scotia Pool because of our warm water experience, something not available anywhere else in Nova Scotia.
Facility Housekeeping Guidelines:
• All programs require pre-registration, there will be no drop-in options available at this time.
• We are asking patrons in all programs to arrive no more than 5 minutes before their program start time and arrive in their suits.
• All patrons are required to shower before entering the water.
• There will be no water cooler available on deck, please bring your own pre-filled water bottle.
• There will be no lockers available at this time.
• Social distancing must be maintained at all times throughout the building and masks must be worn at all times except in the water. Exception: Our lifeguards are not required to wear masks on deck due to safety issues.
