MONTREAL – Some residents in Montreal West are finding the perfect way to beat the heat and cope with rising temperatures – by swimming day and night.
The town’s municipal pool on Bedbrook Avenue has extended its opening hours until Thursday.
Free swim will last until 9:30 p.m. Tuesday and 10 p.m. Wednesday night.
“Saturday and Sunday were both very busy days at the pool,” said Nicky Drummond, a Montreal West lifeguard.
Montreal West is not the only municipality extending its pool hours to help Montrealers keep cool.
Côte-des-Neiges-Notre-Dame-de-Grâce’s Confédération and Kent pools will remain open until 8 p.m. Tuesday, while the splash pads will be open until 11 p.m.
Vaudreuil-Dorion opted to extend its operating hours for pools until 8 p.m. and splash pads until 11 p.m.
The Sainte-Madelaine pool will stay open until Aug. 23 and the Saint-Jean-Baptiste pool will welcome swimmers until Aug. 30.
The complete list of extended pool hours across the island can be found on each borough or city’s website.
