Nelson Pool

This summer, swimming at Burlington outdoor pools will be walk-in only based on first come, first served where larger capacities can accommodate many of our residents. With the exception of Aquafit, online reservation is no longer needed or available for outdoor pools.

This is a welcome return to pre-Covid service to our outdoor pools.

This summer there will be a return to normal programming hours at all pool facilities. This includes longer swim times for Fun Swims and additional Lap Swim opportunities at the outdoor pools.

Payment for walk-ins will be taken at time of entry.

During warmer weather days, free swims or holidays, outdoor pools may reach maximum capacities which may result in wait times to enter the pool.

Online reservations for all swims except Leisure and Fun swims can be done seven days plus two hours in advance. Leisure and Fun swims can be reserved seven days in advance.

Renee Kulinski-McCann explains:  “By moving to walk-in only for our outdoor pools, people can stay and swim or play all day. For those who prefer a little more structure and assurances, our indoor pools will accept online reservations. Either way, there are lots of great swimming opportunities this summer.”
