With lots of sunny days ahead, there's no better way to cool off than by taking a dip in the pool. If you don't have one in your backyard, you can head out to one of these spots around the city for some summer swimming. With lots of free public pools as well as patio swimming spots, you can float the season away at these places. Put on your sunscreen and spend the day at one of Toronto's outdoor swimming pools.

Last week, Toronto's swimming pools officially began to reopen as the city entered stage two. 

You can spend the summer poolside with your friends at some of these little oases. 

Cabana Pool Bar, one of the city's most popular warm-weather destinations, has transformed into a massive waterfront patio.

You can enjoy a meal and take a dip in the pool at this lakeside spot.

High Park is another perfect swimming destination. You can spend the day wandering through the scenic trails and cool off with a dip after.

If you're dreaming of feeling some sand beneath your toes, you can check out some of Toronto's beaches as well.

Put on your favourite swimsuit and float the day away at one of these outdoor pools.
