 Birdseye Pool Rules 

The Township of Scugog has adapted our pool rules to meet the public health safety guidelines and requirements.

  • Those with open sores or communicable diseases will not be admitted into the pool, unless a medical doctor’s certificate is presented.
  • All participants using the lap and leisure pool must change from street clothes to a swim suit and/or clean clothing brought to the facility for the purpose of swimming. Participants may choose to wear t-shirts, thin long sleeve shirts, shorts or tight fitting leggings. Clothing worn in the pool must permit individuals to participate safely in programs. Head coverings must be tight fitting and ensure the safety of the participant.
    • Undergarments, cut-offs, jeans and loose clothing are not permitted in the pool.
    • Shoes must be removed before entering the shower and pool area.
    • For swimmers who are not toilet-trained, specially designed swim diapers are required.
    • Patrons wearing street clothes are only permitted to watch from the viewing area.
  •  Please do not bring food and/or beverages on the pool deck.

  • Our staff are trained to follow specific procedures in the event of a pool fouling. On occasion, extended pool closures may be necessary.

  • The use of all cell phones and picture-taking equipment is prohibited in all change rooms, washrooms and on pool deck. We do ask that anyone wishing to take pictures obtain permission from the Supervisor on duty. This is to respect the privacy and safety of all patrons.

  • A season’s pass will permit patrons to swim during scheduled public swimming times during the week and on weekends.

  • Patrons are not permitted in the pools without a certified lifeguard on duty.

  • All patrons must shower before entering the pool.

  • Swim hours may be changed due to special events, maintenance or other unforeseen circumstances. Changes to the schedule will be posted one week prior to the change, wherever possible. Unscheduled service disruptions can be found online at or by contacting any of our recreation facilities.

  • The pool will remain open on rainy days, unless: thunder and/or lighting is evident; or, the downpour is so heavy, that the black dot on the bottom of the pool is not visible. If either of the above two points are present, the pool must be closed immediately. It may re-open after a 20 minute interval void of these two conditions, or upon the discretion of the Supervisor on duty. In the event of the pool being fouled, the pool will be cleared immediately. The required maintenance for fouled pools will be completed.

    • If any leisure swim or registered swim program is cancelled due to inclement weather/pool fouling within 20 minutes of the start time, an account credit for the admission price will be offered.
    • If any leisure swim or registered swim program is cancelled due to inclement weather/pool fouling after 20 minutes of use from the start time, no refunds/account credit will be given.
    • If swim lessons are cancelled due to inclement weather, or a fouled pool, a make-up class will be offered. If we cannot find a make-up day/time an account credit will be offered.
