As we look for new ways to stay active and engaged, there’s no better place to spend time than our indoor pools. Whether you’re looking to swim with purpose or simply splash around, Surrey’s indoor pools offer a variety of aquatic options for every age and lifestyle.

Pack your swimsuit, slip on your slides and join us as we dive into five features that make our indoor pools the ultimate oasis!

Diving boards

Diving boards add an exciting dimension to every swimming experience. Our indoor pools offer a range of diving boards—from low-height springboards for beginners to platforms for experienced divers. Practice your form or apply your skills at Grandview Heights Aquatic Centre, which features a full set of dive towers. Start at the 1-metre board and work your way up to the 10-metre platform. Each dive is a leap towards fun and a great way to build confidence in the water! 

Steam rooms & saunas

Beyond the pool, our steam rooms and dry saunas provide the perfect place to unwind. The soothing warmth within these spaces also offers several health benefits. Steam rooms can help reduce inflammation, improve skin health and ease congestion.

Meanwhile, saunas, such as those at South Surrey Indoor Pool, can help relax muscles, boost circulation, ease joint pain and provide moments of peace. Make sure to consult with your doctor before using a steam room or sauna. Additionally, remember to take a cooling break every 15 minutes.

Water slides

Nothing says fun quite like a water slide! With twists, turns and the occasional dark tunnel, slipping and sliding is an adventure in itself.

Our slides cater to thrill-seekers of all ages, assuring that everyone—from the young to the young-at-heart—can enjoy the ride. Head to Surrey Sport & Leisure Complex to experience a 160-foot water slide! The facility also features a smaller slide in the leisure pool.

Hot tubs

After a day of diving and sliding, lounge in the comforting warmth of our hot tubs. They’re the perfect spot for parents to relax while keeping an eye on the fun, or for anyone looking to ease muscle tension after a swim.

The gentle jets and warm water can help relieve stress and improve sleep quality to offer a blissful end to an active day.


At the core of our indoor pools lies the sheer joy of swimming itself. Whether you’re doing laps, participating in a water aerobics class or enjoying a quick dip, there’s something for everyone!

Head over to Guildford Recreation Centre, where you can either train in the Olympic-size competition pool or unwind in the leisure pool, which features a lazy river. Be sure to also check out Newton Recreation Centre, which has Surrey’s only wave pool. It’s the ideal spot for some water fun with your family and friends! 

Whether you’re diving, sliding, swimming or unwinding, our indoor pools can help you remain active and engaged. Looking to enjoy water-related fun year-round? An Annual Recreation Pass gives you unlimited access to drop-in activities at our pools, arenas, fitness centres and gymnasiums for an entire year!
