Bring on those poolside summer days. Mayor John Tory announced on Monday that Toronto's pools are opening this week, along with spray pads, wading pools and splash pads. The best part is that they'll be ready to go before Canada Day.

"Splash pads will start to be up and running as early as Wednesday with 15 outdoor pools set to start opening on Friday and others to follow on Saturday," said Tory.

Wading pools, however, won't reopen until July 1. Narcity has reached out to the City for information about which pools will be opening and when.

“Today is good news for Toronto and the many businesses who have been patiently waiting to open their doors again," reads the city's statement.

"The City of Toronto is ready to oversee the safe restart of some services and the partial reopening of many businesses following the provincial announcement."

"The progress we are seeing in stopping the spread of COVID-19 in our community has led to this moment," he added.

Tory didn't extend the sentiment to this weekend's beach-goers, though. The mayor called out the crowds that showed up to Woodbine Beach and Cherry Beach for disregarding social distancing rules.
