If you or the family are hoping to leap into the water for either a fun, casual swim or lap swimming, there’s something you need to know—our swimming options are the envy of the country. First of all, the Bay of Fundy—need we say more? Also, two beautiful rivers, tons of placid lakes at our doorstep, and a world-class indoor facility.
