Take a dip in hundreds of inflatable kiddie pools on Mont-Royal Avenue this month

How often do you strut the streets of Montreal on a hot and humid summer day wishing to jump into a pool? Too often, we say.

Thankfully, Mont-Royal Avenue‘s got you covered.

Montreal’s Mont-Royal Avenue is usually a good spot to go shopping, sip coffee, grab lunch, or get a drink.

But from May 31st to June 3rd, it’ll also be a good spot to lounge by the pool. Lots of pools.

Architect Jean Beaudoin‘s latest interactive exhibition will be this summer’s “Mont-Royal-les-Bains” in which hundreds of blue inflatable pools will be connected side-by-side on the corner of Mont-Royal Avenue and St. Hubert.

The exhibition is open to the public and people are encouraged to take a break and cool off during Montreal’s hot summer days. The street will be closed off to cyclists and motorists so you and your kids can enjoy a nostalgic dip.

The showcase will feature a licensed lifeguard on duty as well as a flock of tiny, yellow rubber duckies floating in the pools.

Jean Beaudoin is looking to build off last year’s exhibition, Cabane sur L’Avenue, where he invited designers to participate in a contemporary architectural contest.

Take the plunge Montrealers, this refreshing exhibit is only happening for four days and when it’s gone, you’ll be wishing all of St. Catherine street’s sidewalks are kiddie pools.
