Welcome Back!

Re-Opening of Chatham Kent's Municipal Indoor Pools

With the previous announcement in early October of the municipal pool rescind order by Dr. Colby, Chatham-Kent's Medical Officer of Health, the Municipality of Chatham-Kent will continue the progressive reopening of Chatham-Kent's municipal indoor pools.

The CKRecreation team will welcome community members back to Wallaceburg Sydenham District Pool on Monday, November 23, 2020.

As the pandemic has changed our world, aquatics programming will be a modified schedule with reduced capacity, in accordance with Public Health and Lifesaving Society recommendations. At the Wallaceburg Sydenham District Pool, programming will begin with lane swims, adult/senior, parent & tot and family swims to be followed by other programming once safety processes and procedures have been fully tested and evaluated. 

How to Register

Since the Program Registration system has changed, old user accounts are no longer valid. Customers who wish to attend program times are asked to set up a new user account, then pre-register, as follows: 

  • Go online here or phone 519.360.1998 to setup a new user account
  • Pre-register for all programs 7 days prior to the desired program
  • Programs will be 45 minutes in duration

On arrival at the Gable Rees Rotary pool facility, on-site pool ambassadors will guide swimmers through the process of entering the facility, screening, sanitizing, checking in, payment and use of the change rooms and pool. 

In order to make the transition as smooth as possible, for the interim, swimmers will only be charged $2.00 per person for every program time. 


By entering, you acknowledge and agree on behalf of yourself and those for whom you are a parent or guardian, that as an indoor facility the use of this building may include possible exposure to and illness from infectious diseases such as COVID-19, and you freely assume all such risks.
