Planning Your Visit

Masks required
Wearing a mask in the facility is required for those ages 5+, except on the pool deck.

Vaccine Card
The BC Vaccine Card is NOT required for swim visits for any age or activity on our regular swimming schedule. The BC Vaccine Card IS required for gym users ages 12+. Please note certain special events, training, and swim meets will have their own requirements; please check the requirements before attending. More information is available here.

Reservations encouraged
Patrons are encouraged to pre-register for activities. Drop-ins will be permitted, subject to swim capacity. Reservations open 1 week before the swim time at 6:00 am and can be booked online, by phone, or in person. Online reservation closes at 6:00 am on the day of the swim, but you can still call or visit in person to book after that. Please note payment is required at the time of reservation. Check the "Prices" section below for details.

Pool capacities
There are no longer reduced capacities on our swims. The number of patrons allowed access is subject to the ratio of lifeguards to public. 

Balcony/viewing area
Families can now sit in the viewing area and balcony.

Kick-boards, pull-buoys, life jackets, pool noodles, flippers, and barbells are available on the pool deck.

Both the dry sauna and steam sauna are now available. Each has a capacity of 3 people and 10-minute maximum stay. 

Water fountains
Water fountains remain closed. Please bring a filled water bottle if desired.

Change rooms and lockers
Gym users may now access the change rooms along with pool users. Lockers are now open for use.

Notes for gym users
Our gym will be open from 6 am to 9:30 pm for drop-in users with access to change rooms for showers. However, gym users who wish to also have a swim/hot tub are required to pre-register, as there are times when pool access will be unavailable due to swimming lessons and school groups, specifically:   

  • Mon–Fri: 10–11 am 
  • Tues/Thurs: 9–11 am / 1–2 pm / 4–6 pm 
  • Mon/Wed: 10–11 am / 1–2 pm / 4–6 pm

New payment policy at the Terrace & District Aquatic Centre:

Starting June 1, 2021, if you’re headed to the TDAC for a swim or gym visit, payment will be required when you register by phone, online, or in person. There are lots of payment options available:

  • Pay by credit card at the time of registration (by phone/online/in person)
  • Purchase a monthly membership any time prior to or at time of registration (by phone/in person)
  • Purchase a gift card prior to registration (you can do this with debit, credit card, or cash when visiting us in person, or over the phone by credit card)
  • Put a credit on your account in advance (you can do this with debit, credit card, or cash when visiting us in person, or over the phone by credit card)

► Why is this happening? We have limited capacities at our facilities, and while many activity sessions are fully booked, we do see some no-shows—they are usually people who did not pay at the time of registration. We are aiming to discourage people from registering for an activity and then not attending, since it takes a spot away from someone else who might want to reserve a spot.

If you book an activity and then can’t attend for any reason, a full refund is available by phone if you provide at least 24 hours’ notice (you must speak to someone in person to do this). If life happens and you can’t attend, please remember to cancel so that others can have the option to take your spot!

Leisure Access Card Program

The City of Terrace offers the Leisure Access Card Program to individuals and families who are on social assistance from the Ministry of Employment and Income Assistance Program administered by the BC Ministry of Social Development or Canadian Pension Plan (CCP) benefits administered by Service Canada. Individuals and families are also eligible if they are designated as a “Person with Disabilities” (PWD) and are receiving PWD benefits under the Ministry of Employment and Income Assistance Program. 

The Leisure Access Card will allow guests to access the pool and gym for $2.00 per adult and $1.00 per child per visit. The 10-visit passes or discounted memberships we offered in the past are not available.

Please reserve your spot online, by phone, or in person.
