And with the City of Langley's outdoor pool offering children's swimming lessons, lane swimming, public swimming, aquatic fitness, and public rentals, there's something for everyone to get excited about.

IS IT SAFE FOR ME TO PARTICIPATE IN PROGRAMS?
We are working hard to make programs as safe as possible in this time of uncertainty. It is of the utmost importance that we all continue to follow the rules set by the health authorities to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.
The opening of Al Anderson Memorial Pool complies with Phase 2 of British Columbia’s Restart Plan, the BC & Yukon Lifesaving Society recommendations for safe lifeguard operations, as well as guidelines developed by the Regional Health Authorities, Ministry of Health, and the BC Centre for Disease Control.
Based on the information provided by our local health authorities, there is no evidence that the COVID-19 virus can spread through the water at pools, hot tubs, or spray parks, and proper disinfection of these aquatic venues should inactivate the virus.
HOW CAN I HELP KEEP PROGRAMS SAFE?
For all, personal protective measures can be implemented to increase your comfort and safety. Please refer to all current recommendations from Health Authorities regarding the steps you can take to increase your personal safety at this time. Personal hygiene measures such as increased hand washing is required and encouraged throughout programs.

WHY ARE YOU ALLOWING SO MANY ONLINE RESERVATIONS? WHY CAN'T IT ALL BE FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED?
We are following the guidelines of the Provincial Health Officer, as well as the Lifesaving Society. We need to eliminate ‘line ups’ and having large numbers of people gathering together. This is why we are recommending that people register in advance to avoid this from happening.
THE SWIM IS FULL. CAN WE WAIT & SEE IF PEOPLE WHO REGISTERED DON'T SHOW UP?
If people have registered and paid online, they have the space available to them. They could show up 15 minutes before the swim ends.
THE SWIM IS FULL. CAN WE WAIT FOR PEOPLE TO LEAVE & GO IN?
Unfortunately no. Participants will be exiting the pool from the outside and our guards cannot keep track of the number of people coming and going. Please encourage customers to come for the next available swim.
CAN I USE CHANGEROOMS & SHOWERS?
We have a 20 person maximum in our change rooms and they are one-way only (entering the pool). come ‘swim ready’! Showers are available on the pool deck. Due to the limited number of change rooms available, families are limited to a quick change and rinse only. All personal grooming must be done at home. Changerooms will closed 10 minutes before the swim ends. This will ensure proper disinfectant and cleaning prior to the next scheduled program.
