Open water swimming

Open water swimming

Are you tired of training under the neon lights of your sports centre? Are you looking for a more dynamic and enjoyable space for your swimming training? Parc Jean-Drapeau offers an open water swimming course in the heart of nature, just a few minutes from downtown Montreal.

Whether you are an athlete or an occasional swimmer, the 300-meter-long course of Jean-Dore Beach is ideal for both competitive and recreational training.

The open water swimming course forms a triangle in which all three sides are 100 meters long and are delimited by buoys. The first corridor is open to the public (1) while the other two corridors are reserved for sports clubs (2 & 3).

Pro tip!

Open water swimming takes place on the lake at Jean-Doré Beach, so it's important that swimmers are able to do the crawl swim over a 300-metre stretch and are comfortable swimming in deep water. Also, we recommend that swimmers have a swimming buoy in open water. And, since the water can sometimes be cold at the beginning or at the end of the season, you should bring a wetsuit because there are no wetsuit rentals on site.

Sports club

Two open water swimming corridors are accessible to members of sports clubs supervised by a certified coach.

Reservation required.
