When I first arrived in Montreal I was surprised to learn that the civic pools had free swimming hours. This wonderful part of Montreal life still exists! In the Sud-Ouest borough there are several great pools to have a dip (or two)! All of the pools are wheelchair accessible.
UPDATE : The Fall 2009 schedule is available on page 9 of Le Sud-Ouest Express
