 Visitors must reserve a time slot in the morning or afternoon and will have to adhere to the assigned reservation time. There will be a 30-minute interval between the two time periods to properly disinfect the site. Many one and a half hour blocks of time are available for lap swimming, although the amount varies depending on the days of the week. The reservation system is now online on the Parc Jean-Drapeau website.
Swimmers need to already have their swimsuit on when they arrive at the Aquatic Complex and must bring along their own safety vest, if needed, because the changing rooms and equipment rental systems are not available on the site.
