Aquatic Complex

Things to do at the Parc

Saturday, August 15, 2020: the Aquatic Complex is at maximum capacity.

All the tickets having been sold and the places reserved: it is no longer possible to accept new swimmers for the day.

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 pool water is heated to around 27° Celsius once the nice weather arrives in May.

  • 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.
