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.
