Lido Pool

Village of Chester

Have you been to the Lido Pool? Well, no summer in the Municipality of Chester is complete without a Seaside Swim in the Seaside Village of Chester.

Built right into the edge of Chester's Back Harbour, the saltwater/chlorine blend pool has been delighting families for generations.

The friendly steps in and gradual depth make it the perfect pool for all ages and skill levels. And as for the backdrop - well it can't be beat. You can watch the tide come in around you and the boats sail by. It really is spectacular.

There's a lifeguard on duty, washrooms for changing, benches to take in the view, and the best part - it's free!

The Lido Pool hosts swimming lessons throughout the summer with public swimming available in between and after the daily sessions.

Sunday evenings are extra special as you can sit or swim with the Summer Bandstand Concert Series as your soundtrack just before the sun sets.
