Coquitlam Bettie Allard YMCA

Coquitlam Resident Access Rates and Hours

The City of Coquitlam has partnered with the YMCA to provide Coquitlam residents access to the Coquitlam Bettie Allard YMCA fitness and aquatic facilities at the City’s drop-in rates. That means if you are a Coquitlam resident, you do not need a YMCA membership to access this facility. 

Extended Summer Hours

Starting July 1 until August 3, 2024, the resident access hours for the pool have been expanded to include an additional 20 hours weekly, for a total of more than 50 hours of access per week. 

Residents can swim in the mornings, afternoons and evenings with eight hours of access daily from Monday to Friday and five and a half hours of access daily on the weekends. The Coquitlam Bettie Allard YMCA aquatic facilities will be closed for maintenance from August 4 to September 8, 2024.
