Splash Pads, Beaches and Outdoor Pools – Pioneer Plains Splash Pad Delayed

Warm weather has arrived in Stittsville and that means the City’s beach, outdoor pool, wading pool and park programs are on their way! Beginning May 18th, here are just a few of the ways you can beat the heat!


Splash Pads are active from May 18 – September 14 (weather dependent) and run from 9:00 AM – 9:00 PM. Splash Pads are available in Stittsville at Pioneer Plains Park,  Bandmaster Park, Upcountry Park and Deer Run Park.


Please note that due to mechanical issues, the splash pad located at Pioneer Plains Park (1018 Stittsville Main St.) will not be ready by opening date (Friday, May 18th). Public Works have identified that there is a broken pipe, which will require further work in order to repair the problem.

For a list of all splash pad locations across the City, please visit https://ottawa.ca/en/residents/recreation-and-parks/swimming#splash-pads-summer-only. To report a malfunctioning splash pad, please call 3-1-1 or email 311@ottawa.ca.
