Guildford Recreation Centre Pool – Now Open!

After  a long wait, the much anticipated pool at Guildford Recreation Centre is now open!  Having a child that loves the water, we have been wanting to check out the new pool which features a leisure pool with a lazy river, spray features and toddler area. We haven’t had a chance to head over to explore the new pool yet, but it is on our list. 

I grew up going to the City Centre Aquatics Complex in Coquitlam and loved the lazy river and the waves. I have found that my 4 year old also loves the lazy river but hates the waves, thankfully this won’t be an issue at the new recreation centre. I am also excited to have the little slides in the leisure pool more suited for toddlers. At other local pools, Nicole doesn’t like to go down the slide in the play area because she cannot see the bottom but will have no issues with the slides at the Guildford pool.

The Guildford pool also features:

  • an 8 lane, 5o meter Olympic size pool
  • a family friendly hot tub
  • waterslides
  • diving springboards
  • steam room and sauna
  • large viewing area
  • large family friendly universal changing area

Guildford Recreation Centre – Aquatics also provides a variety of pool programs including:

  • swimming lessons for all ages
  • shallow and deep water aquacise classes
  • lifeguard, lifesaving and first aid courses
  • regional and provincial level aquatic sports competitions

The facility is located at 15105 – 105 Avenue in Surrey. It also houses a Recreation Centre (including 3 gymnasiums), Weight Room, and Senior’s Lounge. It is conveniently located in the same building as the Guildford Library, has ample parking and is accessible by transit.


  • Under 2: FREE
  • Child & Youth: $3
  • Adult: $6
  • Senior (60+): $4.50
  • Senior (90+): $1.50
  • Family: $3 (per person)

What are you most looking forward to at the new Guildford Pool?


  1. i was very disappointed to head there and spend $14 for my family to head into the pool (me and 3 kids, it wasn’t $3 a person). The small slides, waterslide and diving boards were closed (we went during the day). the hot tub was closed that day, the other things sound like they will be regularly closed except evening after 7pm and weekends. I was told this was a staffing issue. Why open a new pool if you can’t staff it to actually use it. For little ones, if everything was open, it would be fine, but for my older kids it falls far below other pools with no high dive boards, rope swings etc that other pools have. We’ve recently been to Calgary and Kelowna and found the pools (although more expensive) 1000X better. I will not be back. This is too bad as it is our closest pool and we were considering a family membership once it opened.


    1. Oh no! I have heard some varying issues and had hoped they were just initial opening hiccups. I’m sad to hear that so many things are closed! That is quite expensive if you don’t have access to all the options


  2. it is just opening pains and hiccups from what I understand. It should be better soon.


  3. The waterslides sound awesome! Can’t believe its already done! Seems like they just started working on it!


  4. I heard this was opening and will definitely be checking it out when we are in the Lower Mainland next! Thanks for the info, especially as far as pricing is concerned


  5. I thought the changerooms are nice and I like that the lockers give you back your money when you’re done! But the pool is too deep for my 2.5 year old. I think we’ll be going back to the Fleetwood pool.


  6. I miss the recreation pool we used to attend in the city….our small town doesn’t have one like it. Guildford looks fun!


  7. That looks like a great facility! We love going to the public pool near us!


  8. I love taking my kids to the rec centre pools. For fun we like to try out new ones – we haven’t been to this one yet. I might take them over spring break!


  9. wow,its beautiful,our small town doesn’t have a pool


  10. WOW! This place looks like so much fun!
