We always go to wave pool few times a year. My daughter loves to go more but I usually can't make it all the time. Kids love this. It's good for adults too if they love kids because so many kids will be in the water. If you want to do relaxing swimming, this is not the place for you.

Took my 6 year old son here on Saturday late afternoon. Overall it was a good size pool and waves were pretty strong. Lots of pool toys, life jackets, and floaters. They had a small warm water pool for smaller kids too. Even had 2 basketball nets to throw at. The blue slide was very good for young kids ...... More

This is not a swimming pool, rather somewhere to spend time with your kids and enjoy going with the ups and downs of artificial waves. Facility is usually clean and sufficient number of showers in the changing rooms. Sunday afternoons tend to get super busy, so beware that you may not get enough space to play. But your kid will...

We thought we would take our 3 grandchildren ages 9,7 and 5 as We had experienced the wave pool at the West Edmonton Mall. Well I was very disappointed. The pool itself is an average size but the waves were strange. Both my husband and I were getting sea sick with the waves. They do not come to you straight... More

I belong to a naturist group who rent this pool twice a year. It's one of the best events we have and is always well attended. The staff are terrific and very professional.

The Wave Pool has been a top local attraction in Richmond Hill for many years. Swims are offered throughout the day/evening and also on weekends. Swim lessons are available through the Town of Richmond Hill (group and private lessons). The facility also has meeting rooms available which are great for birthday parties. Swims are available as a regular pool as... More

This is just a great place for a kids party. All you need is water and that's the extent of the entertainment. My kids like to hit this ok wave pool in the winter when there's no swimming outside.

It was pretty cold outside for summer, and instead of splash park we went to the wave pool. Kids love it, there's two areas - one is the pool (with periodic waves turned on) and another one is the sauna. The place is clean, change rooms are clean and well maintained, reasonable admission fees.
