Splash Wave Pool

 Facility is closed until January 31, 2022.

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 25 metre lap pool with an accessible ramp and a new 32 metre waterslide!
