With dangerously hot temperatures on the way to Montreal, it might be fitting to know that Parc Jean Drapeau’s Aquatic Complex is now open every day until the end of summer.
The site features three massive Olympic sized pools, trampolines, diving boards and towers, shade areas, sprinklers, and water sports.
The Parc Jean-Drapeau website announced that the man-made island’s Aquatic Complex is ready to refresh Montrealers with their full-time summer hours.

This summer, Waterpolo Québec will be on site every Saturday (from 1 pm to 4 pm), providing guests with the opportunity to discover proper rules and techniques of water-polo. Clinics are free and will allow young people to learn swimming, shooting, and passing techniques.
Parc Jean-Drapeau has three pools on site which they call “one of the finest Aquatic Complexes in Canada.”
The recreational pool is a large, 8-laned pool that is “ideal for swimming and playing in the water.” The bottom of the pool is lined with a cushioned rubber mat for children’s comfort and safety.
The international-calibre pool is intended for training sessions and sports competitions.
The diving pool includes all springboard heights and is intended for diving training sessions. The facility has springboards and diving towers with 1 metre, 3 metre, 5 metre, 7.5 metre, 10 metre, and 22 metre heights.
On Wednesdays, the Aquatic Complex offers free admission to children under the age of 13 with the purchase of a $7.50 adult ticket.
Keep cool, Montreal.
