Aquatic Center

The Garcelon Civic Center Aquatics Facility will be closing on July 1st for annual maintenance, and re-opening on July 15th for a limited summer schedule. Our last day open until July 15th will be June 30th. Please see below to view a copy of the summer 2024 swim schedule.

GCC Summer Closure from July1-14, 2024

Our Aquatic Center includes two pools (junior Olympic and therapy with a fun slide) and it is the perfect place to swim some laps, do an aqua fitness class, splash around with the kids, take swimming lessons, and even have a birthday party!

Children 7 and under must have a responsible guardian (16 years and old) in the water, within arms reach at all times, 1 guardian per 2 children.  Children 8 to 11 years old must have a responsible guardian (16 years and old) on the deck, 1 guardian per 6 children. 

Two Pools and More!

The Flakeboard Therapy Pool is the smaller of our two pools. It is 1m deep all the way through and kept at a higher temperature than the leisure pool, so it’s perfect for relaxing your muscles. This pool contains a bench with jets and is also connected to a small waterslide. The Kiwanis Leisure Pool is the bigger of our two pools. This pool is 25m in length, with the shallow end being 1.2m deep and the deep end dropping to 3m. The temperature in this pool is kept slightly cooler than the therapy pool.


How St. Stephen Aquatics Compares to the Rest of New Brunswick...

2023 St. Stephen Aquatics Stats

We are excited to share the 2023 statistics compiled by the Lifesaving Society of New Brunswick! 2023 saw a significant increase in aquatic programming and registration across the province, and St. Stephen was no exception! When compared to 2022, the St. Stephen Aquatics & Programming Dept. saw a significant jump across the board in its standing with the New Brunswick Lifesaving Society's program participation.

So far in 2024, we are already on pace to well surpass the programming achievements of 2023, and we plan to continue to grow our presence in the province beyond this.

Thank you to all of the fantastic staff members and course participants who have helped us to grow our programming so much. We look forward to continuing to build up the aquatic programming and opportunities available in our community for years to come!

Meet Barb... The Oldest Special Olympics Swimmer in New Brunswick, and a proud member of the St. Stephen Wildcats!

Meet Barb! The Oldest Special Olympics Swimmer in teh Province!

Barb is a proud member of the St. Stephen Wildcats Special Olympics Swim Team, and recently became the oldest Special Olympics swimmer in New Brunswick, having recently turned 70!

Barb always brings a smile and a great attitude to the pool with her when she is in the water practicing. Barb joined the Wildcats just under a year ago, and in that time has progressed from swimming only 5 metres to swimming lap after lap on her back, jumping into the deep end and being able to flip from front to back to turn around.

Barb will be attending her first ever Special Olympics New Brunswick swim meet this Sunday (26th of May), so please join us in wishing her the best of luck!!

We are proud to have Barb on our team, and are consistently impressed by what she has accomplished as the oldest Special Olympics swimmer registered in New Brunswick. Keep up the fantastic work Barb, and GO WILDCATS!!
