Swimming Pools Toronto

Now you can swim at Toronto pools until midnight

If you haven't noticed, it's pretty hot outside in Toronto. We're in throes of a heat wave, and apparently, we're experiencing the driest summer in 75 years. Sure, you can try to cool down with a frozen treat, cold shower, or if you're lucky, air conditioning. Or, just take a dip in your local pool.

Thankfully, in response to the ongoing Extended Heat Warning, the city's keeping seven public pools open until 11:45 p.m. This is for tonight only, weather permitting.


While we're supposed to get some relief from the heat this evening, it'll still be warm out. So here's where you can take a dip after the sun goes down.

  • Alexandra Park (275 Bathurst St.)
  • Alex Duff Pool (779 Crawford St.)
  • Earlscourt Park/Giovanni Caboto Pool (1369 St. Clair Ave. W.)
  • Monarch Park (115 Felstead Ave.)
  • McGregor Park (2231 Lawrence Ave. E.)
  • Smithfield Park (175 Mount Olive Dr.)
  • Sunnyside Park/Gus Ryder Pool (1755 Lake Shore Blvd. W.)
