“Swim meet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Well-run meet, just need more spectator areas. The 2nd day is always painful with swimmers, their stuff, and spectators milling about. It wouldn't be too much of a surprise to have someone accidentally falling in the water at some point. Why are spectators allowed to keep their outside shoes on while swimmers are walking around barefoot? :P

“Great paddling pool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is the perfect place to spend time with toddlers. The paddling pool is huge and is constructed like a lake. In other words, the little ones can just walk in as if walking in from the shore getting themselves deeper as the walk further and further into the water. At the deepest end my 44" tall child comes up to her chest.

For adults, there is a steam room and the pool is great for doing laps. The hours of operation are good and there are aquasize classes and the like available.

“A nice basic aquatic centre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

One of the days in Fernie we had so-so weather so we went to the local swimming pool. It's a fine little aquatic centre, kids had fun, inexpensive, and enough variety. The pool staff could stand to smile a bit more, though...

Love doing laps here or just coming to use the hot tub and steam room. Its amazing how clean this pool is. Staff are friendly and helpful. Rope swing, diving board and water slide for the kids. Also a wade pool for the toddlers.

“Beautiful pool, beautiful views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

The Fernie Aquatic Centre is a perfect place to spend the afternoon with kids. They have a large pool with lots of water toys and balls available for free use. In addition there is a great swing rope, diving board, and large water slide. The water is sparkling clean and warm and the whole facility is really well maintained. My favorite is the massive hot tub with stunning views of the mountains.
