What’s a better activity for a scorching summer day than a dip in a cool pool? If in or near the southern Etobicoke area, take your family to Rotary Park Swimming pool to beat the heat. The outdoor swimming pool is located near the lake, and features a shady playground to enjoy after the swim.
Rotary Park Pool usually opens just before the end of the school year, with the official start of summer programs after July 1st. There are designated family, adult and public swims. The pool also offers private and group lessons. If your kids want to cool off and you donâ€™t feel like getting into your swim suit, there is a splash pad next to the pool where kids can run through sprinklers and fountains.
After going swimming, head down into the playground area of Rotary Park. There is plenty of shade and mature trees, to make it a breezy spot on even the hottest summer days. Many families like to bring a picnic lunch and sprawl on the grassy hills. In the middle of the grounds stands a large wooden play structure, with two slides, tic-tac-toe, a fireman pole and climbing tires, climbing net, among other things. This playground equipment is suitable for toddlers and preschool kids. There are also free-standing swings, “bucket”-type for babies and “belt”-type for older kids.
The park offers plenty of space for a game of hide-and-seek, tag or to throw a ball or a Frisbee. A paved path on a big hill sloping away from the playground is a good challenge for the bike or skateboarding daredevil. Or, you can follow the path instead and will shortly reach a charming little mini- beach for an impromptu rock-throwing contest or just to sit on a log and look at the horizon.
Free parking is located on Lakeshore dr. at 10th street.
