Laugh & Splash
Enjoy a leisure swim in a relaxed and accessible pool environment, established for persons experiencing disabilities and family members. This program is taking place at the Sandra Schmirler Leisure Centre and the Northwest Leisure Centre.
The Sandra Schmirler Leisure Centre is now home to a roof tracking system and powered lift in the accessible/family change room, and a lift system in the pool area for easier transferring of individuals to and from the pool. The North West Leisure Centre is home to a zero depth entry pool with a ramp and wheelchair that can be wheeled directly into the pool. There is one multi-use family change room. City of Regina lifeguards will be on site to supervise the program but are not able to transfer, lift, or reposition individuals. We kindly ask that individuals requiring one-on-one support/assistance please bring an attendant/support person.
To register for a swim time please visit Regina Recreation Online or contact the City of Regina Playline at 306-777-7529 (PLAY).
