There’s no doubt that summer has arrived, and so it’s time to find ways to beat the heat! The following wading pools will be operating in Alta Vista.

‘A’ start sites will be open from June 29 – August 24 and ‘B’ start sites open from July 4 – August 28.

Late Hours

Due to overwhelmingly positive feedback and increased attendance during these times from the public, late operating hours at all City of Ottawa wading pools have returned. as they appreciated the opportunity to enjoy use of the wading pools in the evening with their families.

As a result of this feedback, late hours on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 12:00 – 7:00 pm will be offered this summer.

We feel that this will allow all members of the public the opportunity to access programs and services available to them at their local park.
