“Up the not-so-lazy River”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

Swimming pool with beach-like slope, gradual depth increase, artificial river...watch out for people bumping into you.

“This place ROCKS!!!”
Reviewed October 28, 2011

My sister, along with her 12years old son & her 4years old daughter, myself & my 6years old daughter decided to make a special trip to the Aquatic Center. WOW!!! I can assure you ,you wouldnt be dissapointed!! Its beautiful and very clean there. Its also cheap to go, for the whole family.(P.S. reserve on your credit card first to ENSURE you spot!) .We always eat lunch in town, and it opens at 1pm.You cant bring food or drinks inside the pool area, so bring a water plastic bottle if you little ones get thirsty! We swim till about 530pm and everyone is tired!! They have 2 beautiful pools! One , which is like a beach , and also there is a "river swirl" type circle bath, which kids LOVE! ,and i jetted mini pool for little kids. There is a big waterslide,which is awesome! And the second pool , right besides it,is deeper and use for swimming around and diving ! So many people dont know about this place!!! I give it a 5stars!

“Great family outing!”
Reviewed September 27, 2011

We have driven to Steinbach from Winnipeg a few times to use the Aquatic Centre facilities. It is recommended to purchase admission in advance to ensure that they don't sell out. Swim times are a designated time frame for which you purchase admission to. Our family of four,two adults and two children under 5, was $14.00.

There are bathrooms for men, women and family. All have lockers (either .25 or $1.00, I can't recall). The family one has lockers with benches as well as locked change rooms with showers for the family to change in. There is also a specially designed room with a shower and toilet for wheelchair access.

The swimming facility has a regular sized pool with a waterslide for older kids and adults. The other pool is a beach style pool that goes from 0" to waist deep/or so. There are is a circular part of the pool with jets that swirl the water in a maze form. There is a waterslide that parents can take younger children down on. It does not go into the pool...rather a platform or sort. There is also a hot tub.

If the pool has been contaminated, they do close it down indefinitely. We headed outdoors where there is another pool and a spray pad to play in. There is a grassy area to sit on,as well as a few benches.

We brought either a life jacket or a "ring" for our kids to use. Kids must be within arms reach of a parent/guardian at all times. A lot of fun and hope to go many more times.
