The original outdoor pool was built in 1959 and monies were gathered by the LaSalle Youth Centre through donations and a boat raffle. The outdoor pool was re-opened on June 23, 1999, and was reconstructed to be about 60% bigger than the original pool. Former Mayor Vince Marcotte, and John Beneteau, the first Manager of the original pool, cut the ribbon to officially start the swimming season. 

Thank you for your patience as we continue to work through our gradual reopening of Town amenities. The Town of LaSalle follows the guidelines and recommendations of the Chief Medical Officer of Health and the Region’s Medical Officer of Health, along with the recommendations provided
