July 27 , 2018


Summer is heating up in Ottawa, and Panoramic Properties wants to help you stay cool, all season long. Whether you prefer swimming at an outdoor pool or sandy beach, slipping down a water slide, or sipping a cold drink on a patio, there is something for everyone to enjoy in the steamy summer weather. Here are 5 places to cool down this summer in Ottawa.


Corkstown Outdoor Pool


No matter how hot summer gets, Corkstown Outdoor Pool (61 Corkstown Rd) is there for you. It's only 10 minutes from Baseline Apartments (1785-1815 Baseline Road). This laidback outdoor pool is located in a peaceful park setting. There is a small wading pool for younger children, too! There are lifeguards on duty, washrooms and change rooms, and free parking!


Britannia Beach


If you prefer to swim by a sandy beach, Britannia Beach is only 10-12 minutes from Baseline. There’s also a few volleyball nets, a food pavilion, a BBQ area, restrooms, and outdoors showers to rinse off after your dip. Stick around for stunning sunsets.


Mooney's Bay Park


Mooney's Bay Park (2960 Riverside Dr) is also only about 10 minutes from Baseline Apartments. This is probably the most popular beach in Ottawa. There is a marked swimming area with lifeguards, or just walk along the scenic beach with your feet in the water.


Calypso Park


Calypso Waterpark is Canada's largest theme water park. It's located in Limoges, about 30 minutes east of Baseline Apartments. This is the spot to go for wet and wild summer fun. They feature the largest wave pool in the country, intense water slides, and 2 themed tube rivers. There are also 100 water games to help you chill out this summer.


The Brig Pub


The Brig Pub 23 York Street is located right in the heart of the ByWard Market. One of the best kept secrets in the city is the lush green patio located behind the pub. Abundant plant life hangs from the walls and the patio is open to the sky. It’s the perfect spot to chill out with a cold beverage on a hot summer day at the market.
