Splish and splash the afternoon away at Richmond Hill’s Wave Pool. This indoor pool facility makes it possible to enjoy some leisurely R&R by the water’s edge anytime of year. With a swirl pool, waterslide and sauna, there’s guaranteed fun for the whole family.
For a rocking good time, grab a water mat and let the waves move you through the gently swaying water. Smaller children can enjoy the waves just as much as the big kids by accessing the pool from the shallow bay area. From this alcove, the waves lap towards you slowly, just like at the beach, and only reach about knee height. As you go deeper into the pool, you’ll hit the larger, sweeping waves that can really rock your world. Even so, the depth of the wave pool is about a manageable 70 centimetres.
Forget how chilly the weather outside feels with a soak in the swirl pool – a warm water tub with plenty of room to sit back and relax. Crank up the heat a little higher with some time spent on the on-deck sauna, where you can soothe those sore muscles and improve your circulation with this blast of dry heat. And if you’re up for the excitement, twist and turn down the 160-foot indoor waterslide with a roaring splash back into the pool – it’s a thrilling ride you can experience again and again.
The Wave Pool is the only one of its kind in the entire Greater Toronto Area. The facility can be booked for large groups – talk about a great birthday party idea! Trained lifeguards are always on duty and life jackets are available to ensure your fun day at the wave pool is also safe.
