Aquatic Complex

Things to do at the Parc

Open swim

Parc Jean-Drapeau has one of the finest outdoor aquatic complexes in Canada! The recreation pool for open swimming and lane swimming for the general public is usually accessible every day of the summer season.

The gradual-slope recreational pool, which covers an area of 3,557 square metres, is perfect for swimming and playing in the water. The bottom has a cushioned rubber mat for children's comfort and safety.

Accessible to all, the water play area enables everyone to get refreshed in an enjoyable, pleasant and safe manner. Swimmers can also take advantage of the Aquatic Complex's widespread area to lounge in the sun around the pool or in the expansive shady area, spending some time relaxing in the great outdoors.

Whether it's with your family, friends, or just by yourself, the recreational pool at the Aquatic Complex has something to delight every swimming fan.

Prevention and safety

The Parc Jean-Drapeau team provides its clientele with a pleasant and safe swimming experience. Because the collaboration of everyone is essential, please take a few moments to familiarize yourself with the various rules and regulations in force our facilities:

Children under the age of 8 must at all times be accompanied and monitored, at a minimum, by a person aged 16 or over, wearing his/her swim suit, in the swimming area, based on the ratio below:

0-24 months 1 adult / 1 child
25 months to 8 years 1 adult / 3 children

Example: A parent who is alone, with two young children, is not allowed to enter the swimming area if one of these two children is under the age of 25 months old; this is in respect to the monitor-child ratio.
