This facility features a large pool that sends large waves through to swimmers intermittently. Features include large slide, sauna, spacious change rooms, basketball nets, and various flotation toys. One drawback is that there is a fee for lockers and you cannot bring your own lock.

Kids centered. Covered slide is good. Walk in beach. The Wave machine is one of best in GTA only one in Richmond Hill area. Life guards are actually friendly. Have had experience with good swim instructors.
