Outdoor pools

2020-07-02 | Update - Opening of swimming and wading pools
The Seaway Park swimming and wading pools have been open since June 24. As of July 3, the swimming pools in Alexandra and Préville parks as well as the wading pool in Alexandra Park will be open.

Preparations are continuing for the wading pool in Lespérance Park, which was completely redeveloped last year. We will inform you of its opening as soon as possible.    

The wading pool at Préville Park, which is too small to be opened safely, will be closed for the summer.

Lespérance wading pool

In case of bad weather, the City reserves the right to close the outdoor pools. 

Please note that children under 8 must be accompanied by an adult in the water and that wading pools are for children under 8.

Cost

Resident rate

Admission to all outdoor pools is free for residents. However, you must reserve a time slot before going to the pool. 

Non-resident rates

Exceptionally for the summer 2020 season, access to the pools will be reserved for Saint-Lambert residents only. 

Reservation system

You will have to reserve a swimming time slot beforehand via the leisure activity registration module before going to one of the three pools. A valid resident’s card must be presented for each person who comes to swim. You must also have a Loisirs membership in your B-CITI account.
