The City of Richmond is reopening Watermania for the season, social distancing style—just in time for Spring Break.
Voted one of Richmond’s best family amusement centres, Watermania is located in the Riverport Sports and Entertainment Complex at 14300 Entertainment Boulevard, beside Lucky 9 Lanes bowling, Richmond Ice Centre, and SilverCity Riverport Cinemas (the last of which unfortunately remains closed at this time).
Watermania will reopen on March 15, 2021 as a part of the city’s carefully planned step-by-step approach to reopening public services.
The Aquatic Centre will be open daily for fitness, public swim sessions and lessons seven days a week, although there will be a limited selection of recreation programs.
It’s important to note that if you are planning to visit, there will be mandatory pre-registration for all visitors to ensure safety measures and physical distancing are in place. You can register now on their website or by calling them directly.
