AMBERWOOD VILLAGE POOL: A heated, saltwater pool, open from mid-May until mid-September. You’ll either need a pool membership or attend as a guest of a member — so this might be a good time to make friends with someone in Amberwood. Pool memberships are $160 for adults, $65 for youth, or $350 for a family membership (up to 2 adults and 3 kids). There’s a popular adult aquafit class every weekday morning at 9:00am, and family swim from 12-3pm and 5:30pm-8:00pm daily.
GLEN CAIRN POOL (50 Castlefrank): A City of Ottawa facility, open from mid-June til late August each year. Besides a very large main pool, there’s also a smaller shallow pool for younger kids. This pool was renovated in the past few years and is one of our family’s favourite spots to cool off on a hot summer day. $1.90 per person when you go as a family.
KATIMAVIK POOL (64 Chimo): Like the Glen Cairn Pool, this is a City of Ottawa facility, located next to Katimavik Elementary School. A little bit smaller than Glen Cairn, it also features two pools. It’s surrounded by mature trees so there’s lots of shade. $1.90 per person when you go as a family.
