Located at the Ongwanada Resource Centre on Portsmouth Avenue, the pool is open to Ongwanada clients and anyone in the community who could benefit from hydrotherapy, particularly seniors, people with physical disabilities or individuals recovering from surgery or injury. The pool is kept at approximately 36C which allows stiff muscles to relax, helps to reduce pain, improves circulation and allows for moderate strengthening.
The pool is wheelchair accessible with a ramp and mechanical lift to assist clients into the water. Visitors may share the pool with Ongwanada clients and an application and appointments are necessary. Hours of operation run 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m., 10:30 a.m. - 12 noon, and 1 p.m. -3:30 p.m. Monday to Friday excluding holidays. Ongwanada charges $2.50 per-session for children and seniors and $3.50 for adults.
