While the clock has wound down on summer, the City of Toronto is giving residents a few extra weeks to enjoy the warm weather.

The city has announced nine outdoor pools will remain open until Sunday, Sept. 19.

The pools that will remain open include Alex Duff Memorial Pool, Heron Park Community Centre, Grandravine Community Recreation Centre, McGregor Park Community Centre, Monarch Park Pool, Parkway Forest Outdoor Pool, Pine Point Outdoor Pool, Sunnyside/ Gus Ryder Outdoor Pool, and West Mall Outdoor Pool.

The pools remained open for regular summer hours on Tuesday and Wednesday after the Labour Day holiday.

Until September 18, extended season hours of operation will be 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. on weekdays and on weekends, 10:30 a.m. to noon for locations that offer lane swim and noon to 8 p.m. for leisure swim at all locations.

These pools will close for the season on Sunday, Sept. 19 at 4 p.m.

As reported by CP24, Mayor John Tory, said COVID-19-related safety restrictions will be in place.

“It is a healthy, safe outdoor activity during times where we still have to be careful about what we are doing, and I would remind people that there are some restrictions on those pools,” Tory told CP24.
