A popular Burlington swimming pool is set to reopen with a new look and improved features.

The reopening of Mountainside Outdoor Pool will take place June 30 at 3:30 p.m. with official ceremonies and a ribbon cutting with Mayor Marianne Meed Ward.

As part of the celebrations, you can get a free hotdog or hamburger, beginning at 4 p.m., while supplies last.

As well, the pool will be free to use all weekend.

“The pool is back and ready to be a hub of fun, and activity and to create summer memories for another 50 years of swimmers,” said Emilie Cote, director of Recreation, Community and Culture. “It’s an improved pool design with several improvements such as separated lap lanes, climbing wall and large water slide. I hope everyone has the opportunity to enjoy it soon.”

Revitalization highlights include:

  • A new pool with a beach entry
  • Three separate 50M lap lanes
  • Accessibility ramps
  • Water spray features
  • Climbing wall
  • Waterslide
  • Shade structures

“We’re glad to have this project completed in time for the summer swimming season,” said Jennifer Johnson, senior project manager, Facilities and Buildings.

Mountainside Outdoor Pool and Splash Park, located at 2205 Mount Forest Dr., offers local residents a wide variety of activities including recreational swimming, lap swimming and learn-to-swim lessons each summer.
