- Monday and Thursday: 6am–6pm
- Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday: 6am–8pm
- Saturday–Sunday: 8am–8pm
Public holidays we're open 8am–8pm
Note: So swimmers have enough time to dry and change before the pool closes for the night, all swimmers must be out of the pools 15 minutes before closing time.

The complex also features:

Fun whatever the weather; with inflatables and games in the pool on weekends, as well as public holidays and every day of the school holidays from 1pm–4.30pm.
Learning to swim and survive is a fundamental life skill that opens up a world of opportunities.
