Indoor Swimming

The Recreation Complex in Rocky Harbour includes a 25 m indoor pool with a shallow bay, a leisure harbour, a whirlpool, and a variety of scheduled supervised activities.

The health and safety of Canadians, visitors and Parks Canada team members is our top priority. We are following the advice of public health experts and taking steps to support the Government of Canada’s efforts to limit the spread of COVID-19 and reduce risks to visitors, employees, and other users of Parks Canada spaces. With this in mind the Gros Morne National Park swimming pool will remain CLOSED for the 2020 visitor season. 

For further information on swim programs call 709-458-3610and 709-458-2417 during the off season.

Outdoor Swimming

Change houses are located at Shallow Bay (saltwater), Lomond (Closed for 2020) (saltwater), and Trout River Pond (freshwater) for unsupervised swimming. There are outdoor showers at Lomond. Caution should be exercised when swimming in the ocean due to currents and low water temperature. Swimming off the beach at the mouth of Western Brook can be dangerous and is not recommended.
