Wearing proper swimwear: a matter of safety and hygiene
According to the Lifesaving Society, certain types of clothing pose a risk of drowning, mainly because of their weight when wet. Thus, wearing proper swimwear is mandatory at the pool or at the Parc Jean-Drapeau Beach. This suitable clothing, usually a bathing suit, is made of lycra or spandex that fits tightly on the body to allow for free movement and proper floatability. It does not pose any safety constraints, does not endanger the health of users and does not affect the quality of swimming water. The swimwear is appropriate and reserved solely for swimming.
There are alternatives for users who for personal reasons cannot expose a part of their body. The burkini and rashguard are permissible because they enable the user to freely use the hands and feet, the neck and face are uncovered and the fabric is close to the body so that movement is unaffected.
Loose-fitting clothing or clothing made of absorbent fabrics or clothing that isn't adjusted to the body are not permitted.
Please note that Île Notre-Dame will be completely closed from June 1 to 10, 2013 inclusive because of the Grand Prix du Canada. The South Shore bike path and Circuit Gilles-Villeneuve will not be accessible during this time span.
