The front entrance at Gatchell Pool will be closed for six to eight weeks, beginning September 12, 2022, while the entryway is being renovated.
During this time, visitors will need to use the door to the left of the main entrance (school side) to access the pool. Unfortunately, the school-side entrance is not accessible for people requiring a ramp. Visitors unable to access the building are encouraged to contact Leisure Services at email@example.com or 705-674-4455, extension 2446 to discuss their options.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

There’s a new way to register for leisure programs or book a facility. It’s easy to create an account! If you need help getting started, visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.
The French interface of our new registration system is still under development, however it is important that the City goes live with the new system as the existing registration and facility booking system is no longer supported by the vendor. Residents can still receive this service in French by calling 311 to have a French-speaking operator process bookings or registrations. The French interface will be launched in time for the fall/winter registration period.
