Join us in the water: swimming lessons for all ages, fitness classes for all abilities, fun for all families!
The beautiful pools at your YMCA Health, Fitness & Aquatics facility are constantly full of activity. A range of programming and professional training is offered: there's something for everyone, and you are sure to find what's just right for you.
Drop-in programs are available free of charge to Y members. Non-members can easily purchase a day pass to enjoy the pools. In summer, our YMCA also works in partnership with the City of Owen Sound to operate the Harrison Park pool.
