Aquatic Complex

Aquatic Complex

Parc Jean-Drapeau has one of the finest outdoor Aquatic Complexes in Canada! In addition to the shade areas and water games that are accessible to everyone, the Aquatic Complex has three pools:

  • Recreational pool

    The large, gradual-slope pool is ideal for swimming and playing in the water. The bottom of the pool has a cushioned rubber mat for children's comfort and safety.

    The recreational pool also has 8 lanes for all swimmers that want to do laps.

  • Diving pool

    The diving pool includes all springboard heights and is intended for diving training sessions. The facility has springboards and diving towers of 1 m, 3 m, 5 m, 7.5 m, 10 m, and 22 m.

  • Competition pool

    The international-calibre pool is intended for training sessions and sports competitions.

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 7 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 7 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.

Open swim

The open swim takes place in the recreational pool only. Once the nice weather arrives in May, the recreational pool of the Aquatic Complex welcomes swimmers with water heated to around 27° Celsius.

Whether it's for a family swim, freshening up and spending some time lolling in the sun, or doing some laps, the Aquatic Complex's recreation pool has something to please every swimming enthusiast.

Morning training sessions

The Aquatic Complex offers all pool users a new time span for training. On weekday mornings, swimmers can do laps in 4 swim lanes in the recreational pool.


Covid-19 Given the current context, we are forced to move the official opening date of the Aquatic Complex.
