Just in time for 30C temperatures, the shady wading pool at Charles G. William Park (aka Sorauren playground) is now open daily till September 6. Normal hours are 10 am – 5 pm, but check with staff for adjustments.
The wading pool is open under enhanced safety rules due to COVID. Parents can read the full guidelines on the City of Toronto SwimTO website.
Stay home if anyone is feeling ill. Wash your hands before and after using the wading pool, and bring hand sanitizer. Practice physical distancing. Staff will be on hand at the wading pool to monitor safe play.
The province and City have approved the opening of outdoor pools. Studies show the coronavirus does not survive in chlorinated water like that found in the City’s swimming and wading pools.
