Outdoor Pools

Enjoy a cool pool on hot days! The City of Cornwall operates five outdoor pools in July and August. All pools have five lanes measuring 25 metres with an attached wading pool.

  • Reg Campbell Pool - 637 Fraser Avenue

Public swimming sessions will last 45 minutes at a time, starting on the hour. Between each swim, 15 minutes will be used for lifeguards to disinfect surfaces and move in the next group of swimmers.

Here's how you can safely use outdoor pools this summer:

  1. Physical distancing is required inside and outside the pool, with household members excepted,
  2. Swimmers must use the designated entrance and exit to the pool area,
  3. Swimmers will be asked screening questions upon their arrival at the pool,
  4. Swimmers must shower before entering the pool and sanitize their hands,
  5. Swimmers will be limited to 20 in the large pool and 10 in the wading pool, and
  6. Residents who are sick must stay home and not use public facilities.

Please also note that…

  • No equipment will be provided. Swimmers should bring their own floatation equipment.
