GROUP BOOKINGS: Please note that ALL groups/organizations planning to join a public swim MUST contact the Trenton Parks & Recreation office (902-752-1019) prior to coming to Trenton Park. This includes all other recreation dept's, day camps & community groups. Booking ahead allows us to schedule all groups to keep everyone safe in the pool as additional lifeguards must be scheduled. We will attempt to keep larger groups scheduled for different times throughout the day. The Trenton Day Camp goes swimming daily from 1:00pm to 2:00pm, other groups will NOT be scheduled during this swim time to allow space in the pool for public use as well. Groups who book through the office may be eligible for a discounted group rate. If you fail to book through the office, you will be required to pay the full rates (see prices below).
