Idlewood outdoor pool


Idlewood Community Pool is Kitchener's best kept secret. This beautiful outdoor community pool, nestled in quiet green space is ready for you to explore. The pool features a lane area as well as a small slide and expansive shallow area ideal for young families. It is within walking distance from many Kitchener neighbourhoods, but also provides bike racks and extensive parking. 

Idlewood Community Pool is open from June 28 to Aug. 25, 2019 (the pool is open on the stat holidays of July 1 and Aug. 5)

Please note that inclement weather, including heavy rainfall, thunder and lightning, or pool water below 16 degrees, will result in a pool closure.
