St. Mary's Quarry, St. Mary's ON

The final stop on our Fathers' Day tour was to the St. Mary's Quarry in St. Mary's ON. As you can see from the photos the quarry is stunning and the water is so clear that despite its depth you can still see right down to the bottom.


Once a limestone quarry, it has been rehabilitated for swimming. The Quarry is now Canada’s largest outdoor freshwater swimming pool. This exciting attraction includes high and low dives, cliff jumping, and a slide. There is a large grassed area for picnics or sunbathing, sand volleyball and there is a tiki hut for snacks. Spend an hour or a full day! The price was very reasonable, especially since it is quite possible to spend the entire day there thanks to the excellent facilities.


This is as close as I get to jumping in . . . LOL . . . I can't swim enough to save myself. But I did enjoy relaxing in a muskoka chair under a shady tree while the kids and grandkids had a great time.
