6 Outdoor Pools That Will Be Open In Time For Montreal's Upcoming Heat Wave (UPDATED)

A heat wave is set to roll into town this weekend with temperatures in Montreal and Laval reaching 30 degrees or higher — and feeling like 40 degrees with the humidity.

This begs a very important question: which outdoor pools in Montreal will be open when the hot weather arrives?

Some pools and water facilities will be ready to cool you down just in time, according to Pascale Sévigny, a communications advisor for the City of Montreal.

He said three facilities will open in the next few days:

  • Hans-Seyle Park Pool (June 4)

  • Dixie Pool (June 5)

  • Jean Drapeau Park Pool (June 5)

In terms of private pools, Club LaCité announced that its downtown rooftop pool is reopening to the public on June 7. A day pass will cost non-members $15.

There are also a ton of play fountains you can run through if you're in dire need of a quick refresher. 

A list of the city's public pools previously stated that a couple of pools were already open. But Sévigny has since clarified that the following two pools will open on June 19*: 

  • Parc Hébert Pool*

  • Parc Ladauversière Pool*

Most public pools are expected to reopen during the weeks of June 12 and 19, according to Sévigny.
