“We’ve worked to extend the outdoor pool season this year. This extension recognizes the new start of the school year for children throughout Toronto,” said Tory.
“I encourage Torontonians to take the opportunity to get out and continue to soak up summer this long weekend at all the City’s outdoor pools.”
The City says in order to allow for physical distancing due to COVID-19, the capacity at outdoor pools is reduced.
Swimmers will be limited to 45-minute sessions to allow for cleaning.
Reservations for 45-minute leisure or lane swim sessions must be made in advance online.
