Pools & Splash Pads

The City of St. Catharines operates seven pools, conveniently located throughout the city: one indoor pool that operates yearly and six outdoor pools that operate only during the summer months. Our pools provide citizens and visitors with the opportunity to get involved in a wide variety of healthy activities for all ages and skill levels, including recreational swimming, swimming lessons and fitness.

The City of St. Catharines also operates two splash pads, located throughout the city, which operate late May to September.
