Dreamiest swimming pools across Canada to cool off in this summer
Note: Due to COVID-19, some of these swimming pools may have reduced hours or require reservations in advance. Be sure to check their websites for updates.
We may be better known for our gorgeous Great Lakes and covetable coasts complete with ocean views, but luckily for those of us who are a little more landlocked, Canada sure doesn't skimp in the swimming pool department, either. As soon as the summer sun starts to make its appearance, Canadians flock to secure that prime poolside real estate at the local park or community centre. And nothing feels better than that first jump into those soothing, cool waters after a long, snowy winter!
Behold, the most refreshing, pic-worthy pools open to the public from all across Canada — so dreamy and crystal clear, you can't help but dip your toes in!
