The Parc Jean Drapeau water complex features a gradual slope entry for young children and three outdoor pools: one for competition, a recreational pool, and diving pool (though be sure to call in advance to check if the diving pool is open to the public if you want to use it, it’s often in use by competitive athletes).
On select Saturdays in June, July and August, theme days feature animated activities, an inflatable structure set up in the recreational pool, and introductory clinics on water polo offered by Waterpolo Quebec. Facilities include changing rooms, lockers, and an aquatic accessories kiosk.
