In accordance with the Quebec government’s health and safety directives related to COVID-19, we are happy to announce that the City of Westmount will be opening the municipal pool for the 2021 summer season on Monday, June 14.

Due to the guidelines set forth by the Direction régionale de la santé publique and aquatic organizations, the pool programming has been modified in order to maximize the safety of the staff and the users of the pool.

**Unfortunately, due to the distancing measures that remain in place, swim lessons will not be offered this summer.**

Access is limited to Westmount 2021 Facility Membership Card-holders only and a reservation must be made through the following link : westmount.org/reservation. The online reservations can be made every day starting at 12 p.m., up to a maximum of 3 days in advance.

Reservations must be made for each family member individually. For children under 4 years old without a membership card, please contact recreation@westmount.org for their membership number.
