Splash Wave Pool

The name says it all! Splash is one of three wave pools located in Ottawa.

Wave pools provide the perfect destination for visitors to our city including bus tours and group outings. Residents can also enjoy the “surf” or take a leisurely swim when the waves are off. There is also a kiddie pool with spray fountains and whirlpool. The facility also boasts a brand new 25m lap pool with an accessible ramp and a new 32m waterslide!
