The City of Toronto has announced SwimTO—a quick-start program that will expedite the opening of the city’s outdoor pools, wading pools, and splash pads.
Earlier this month, the Ford government announced the City of Toronto would be moving into the second phase of reopening on June 24.
When permitted, the city plans to open its outdoor aquatic amenities to prevent heat related-illnesses while continuing to stop the spread of COVID-19.
It is expected that capacity at outdoor pools will be significantly reduced. City Staff are awaiting provincial guidelines and will prioritize leisure swims throughout the day to give as many swimmers as possible the opportunity to cool off.
