Pool Safety & Etiquette 

  • Children under the age of seven must be within arm's reach of an adult (16+ years) at all times. 1 adult to a maximum of 3 children.
  • Outside shoes are not allowed on the pool deck; they can track dirt and germs which contaminate the pool. Please go barefoot or wear non-slip footwear when on the pool deck. 
  • Always remember to walk on the deck. Do not run.
  • Health regulations require that everyone take a cleansing shower using soap before entering the pool or swirl pool areas.
  • Diving is permitted in the deep end of the main/sunshine pools only.
  • Should any injuries occur when at the pool, report it to the lifeguard staff right away.
  • In an emergency, follow the directions of the lifeguard staff right away.
  • For health and safety, please do not go into the pool if you have an illness, head cold, open sores or bandages, or an infection of the ears and/or eyes.
  • The family change rooms are very busy spaces. These rooms are for people with children of the opposite gender and their caregivers, and for people with disabilities. Please ensure that you remove your belongings from these spaces when not in use.
  • Private swim instruction, including personal coaching and organized practices, is strictly prohibited in Delta Aquatic Facilities. All swimming instruction must be registered through the City of Delta's recreation department.
