Aylmer Pool

Living in Aylmer Menu

The Pool has been in Aylmer since 1944, but it wasn’t always a pool…

The present pool, located at 7 Myrtle Street in Aylmer, was actually used as a reservoir for the waterworks system back in the 1930’s. Water was pumped from Caverly’s pond on Caverly Road to the reservoir, and then pumped through the mains to provide fire protection and water for the houses and industries of Aylmer. When the Town discontinued its use of the reservoir, it was converted into a swimming pool in 1944, with a change house added in 1947.

We have a brand new Bath House (the first since 1967!). It is completely wheelchair accessible including our washrooms and showers. The Aylmer Pool also has a chair lift for any persons who are immobilized so that they can be immersed in the water and be interactive with everyone around them.

The Aylmer Pool is used all summer long, providing a space for the public to cool off and for the little ones to learn how to swim.

This summer, beat the heat and enjoy a swim at the Aylmer Pool.
