The outdoor swimming season will soon be coming to an end for all City of Ottawa outdoor pools, wading pools and supervised beaches. Most splash pads will remain open until mid September.
As of Monday, August 17, beaches will no longer be supervised. Lifeguards will remain on duty until Sunday, August 16 from noon to 7 p.m. at all five Ottawa beaches – Britannia, Westboro, Mooney’s Bay, Petrie Island East Bay and Petrie Island River.
Information on water quality at each beach will be available until this time at ottawa.ca/beaches.
Outdoor pools and wading pools
Closing dates and operating hours for most outdoor pools and wading pools vary between August 16 and August 30.
Most of the City’s splash pads will continue to operate between 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. until September 16.
Indoor pools will operate on the summer schedule until Labour Day weekend.
Although the City’s summer water-related activities are coming to an end, many families and friends are still enjoying time at the cottage, boating, or swimming in backyard pools. Ottawa Public Health reminds everyone to ensure safety around water at all times.
Public swimming and other aquatic activities can still be enjoyed during the fall and winter at City of Ottawa facilities.
