River Ward Wading Pools opening soon for summer fun

River Ward Wading Pools opening soon for summer fun

Join City of Ottawa Recreation staff for summer fun at one of 9 wading pools across River Ward.  New this year, later hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays at some locations to allow families to come out after work hours. 

Each location will have a Special Event date that features arts and crafts, games, prizes, and lots of time to stay cool in the pool!

In addition, Fridays are theme days!  Come out for some extra organized fun on Fridays at any of the City’s wading pools.

Special Events – normally take place from opening of the pool until approximately 2-2:30pm.  Specific times are still being finalized as summer camps, etc. are being booked for swimming  which impact the timing of events.   Confirmed times will be posted at all wading pools. 

Fun Fridays – Take place at all city wading pools.   Regular weekly programming that takes place during the week will take on a “special theme” on Fridays.   Programming schedules will be posted weekly at individual wading pools as they may vary from week to week to ensure variety.
