Summer arrived suddenly, without warning, and it looks like it's here to stay. Though I most certainly won't complain about the heat, I will say that I am slightly at a loss about what to do to cool off.\nThis is where neighbourhood pools come in handy. During the warm summer months, these little oases are open to the public, and many of them are free for at least a few days a week.\nRead on for a list of free pools in Montreal. Pick the pool closest to you, grab your bathing suit, and get swimming! There's no better way to cool off during the summer.\nJarry Pool\nWhere: 205 rue Gary-Carter\nWhen: Free every day.\nView this post on Instagram Looks good eh? Join me at Jarry park pool today.
