Well known by water sport enthusiasts in the Greater Montréal area, the Parc Jean-Drapeau has two facilities for swimming, enjoying summertime, and escaping heat waves.
At Jean-Doré Beach, people can swim and take a refreshing dip every day during summer season. Thanks to a wide swimming area of more than 15,000 square metres, both kids and grown-ups can enjoy of fun-filled day at the Beach.
Open water swimming supervised by an accredited lifeguard is also available to visitors at certain times of the week.
Parc Jean-Drapeau's Aquatic Complex has three outdoor pools for swimmers to enjoy the water and the sun.
The huge gradual-slope recreation pool is ideal for families who want to swim in total safety. The second pool, divided into lanes, lets you put in laps and improve your swimming techniques. The third pool, open to the public at specific times, is for diving and is equipped with springboards of various heights.
Due to construction work near the Aquatic Complex, it will be closed to public and athletes for the 2017 season.
