Consider a Family Pool Membership!


Swimming is a great way for families to get moving and have fun together.  Whether you want to swim laps, join an AquaFIT class, enrol the kids in swimming lessons or simply cool off, the RA’s Outdoor Pool is the place to be!
This outdoor facility offers a large, heated L-shaped pool with a diving section and a smaller teaching pool with a constant depth of 3.5 feet.  T
he spacious pool deck is equipped with shady awnings, lounge chairs and picnic tables, and toys such as flutter boards and pool noodles.  
An outstanding team of aquatics professionals lead programs and oversee the operations.  All of this makes the RA outdoor pool the best place in Ottawa to spend a sunny afternoon.

 


2017 Season: Saturday, June 24 to Friday, September 1


Please note:  The RA outdoor pools are accesed by using the RA's main entrances and walking through the building.  There is no parking or access to the pool at the back of the building.
