In just a few weeks it will finally be summer! Now that the weather is finally going to get hot again, it is time to enjoy the sunny days relaxing outdoors. While relaxing at a patio is always fun, one of the best ways to enjoy a summer day is by going swimming!
While Ottawa isn't known for having the best beaches, only a 30 minute away there is a hidden swimming hole that has clear blue water. Located in Wakefield, Quebec, Morrison's Quarry has the clearest water you'll find near Ottawa. The water is so clear, that you can see anywhere from 25 feet to 100 feet down!
Morrison's Quarry is typically used for scuba diving classes and for Great Canadian Bungee which is the highest bungee jump in Canada, but it also makes a fantastic place to swim. While here you'll want to try the water slide, which is super fun!
Make sure to invite your friends to enjoy a relaxing day at this local gem. It is easy to spend the entire day here as there are several picnic tables and a BBQ so that you can grill up your lunch. Then after spending some time swimming, you can relax or work on your tan on the sandy beach or floating sundeck.
Entrance to Morrison's Quarry is super affordable at $10 a person. To help you maximize your entrance fee, make sure to pack a lunch so you can spend the entire day swimming at this beautiful spot.
