Not Too Cool for Pools

SavvyMom March 31, 2016

Stay cool—and pool your resources for fun this summer.
Had enough of splash pads? Take the troops pool-hopping this summer. Toronto offers 58 outdoor pools across the city and the best part is, family swimming is free (just don’t forget your change for lockers).

Starting Saturday, most of Toronto’s outdoor pools will be open for the season. Dive into our top six picks:

After an extensive renovation, Sunnyside pool (also known as The Gus Ryder Pool) has re-opened. Located at the base of Parkside Drive at Lake Shore Blvd., this pool offers plenty of parking and a newly renovated change room with ample locker space. The nearby café offers drinks and concession-style food throughout the summer.

The Beach’s most popular outdoor pool, the Donald D. Summerville Pool, offers an Olympic-sized pool, a 25-metre children’s pool and a diving pool with 10-metre diving boards overlooking Woodbine and Lake Shore. If you’re driving, we recommend you get there early to have a better shot at nearby parking. If your group is up for a post-swim snack, there are a variety of nearby restaurants to choose from. There are also plenty of playgrounds within walking distance if your kids need to burn off a little more energy.
