Want to beat the heat this summer? Look no further because Panoramic Properties has the top 5 places to cool off and go for a refreshing swim in Ottawa.

Mooney’s Bay Beach

This beach is a great place to be in the summer. It’s located on the east shore of the Ottawa River. You can sunbathe, swim and even play sports like volleyball and tennis. It’s also the perfect spot for a picnic! Mooney’s Bay is also supervised with trained lifeguards.

Westboro Beach

If you prefer a less crowded beach, check out Westboro Beach. It’s located at Kitchissippi Lookout. This sandy beach is supervised and is the perfect place to enjoy a variety of water sports. When you get hungry or thirsty, you can relax at the Westboro Beach cafe and grab a bite to eat. It’s an excellent place to swim, listen to music and enjoy the good weather. 

Calypso Theme Water Park

Not a beach person? Not to worry. You can always visit Calypso, Canada’s largest theme waterpark. Cool off in a massive wave pool or check out the 35 slides and 2 theme rivers! It’s a great place to spend the day with friends or family, relax or have some fun. At Calypso Theme Water park, there’s something for everyone!

Minto Recreation Complex

Voted one of Canada’s best indoor pools, the Minto Recreation Complex is worth a visit. Not only is the architecture beautiful (with huge windows and lots of natural light), the pool has 6 lanes, diving boards and a Tarzan rope! Definitely a cool place to be this summer.

La Pêche Beach

About an hour outside of Ottawa you’ll find a beautiful beach called La Pêche. Here you can enjoy the wilderness without having to travel too far, so it’s an ideal day trip or weekend getaway. You can rent canoes and kayaks or just go for a swim and enjoy the scenery. If you love the outdoors, this is the place for you!

Cooling off on a hot summer day is never a problem in Ottawa! There are plenty of options to choose from.
