If you’re looking for things to do in Montreal in summer, try a waterpark. We are very lucky to have some of the very best waterparks near Montreal. While none are in the city, they are at a reasonable distance, most of which are about an hour away or so. It’s a great way to cool off and it’s a lot of fun. Check out the best of the best close to home.
The closest and one of the most popular waterparks near Montreal is Super Aqua Club located in Pointe-Calumet, less than a half hour for Montrealers to drive to. It boasts lots of activities, a beach, a picnic area by the beach, and of course, lots of water slides, many of them themed.
It’s really popular, so that means waiting times are long for many of the slides. Also, Super Aqua Club is not the ideal waterpark for young kids or those under 54″ – they just won’t have much to do.

Less than an hour from Montreal is the waterpark in St-Sauveur – one that the whole family can enjoy – from refreshing pools to the awesomeness of the wave pool, or the extreme feeling of rafting down the mountain.
Most of the water slides here are heated between 22 and 24 degrees Celsius, so it’s fun and comfortable! Only two of the water slides, the Niagara and the Colorado are NOT heated but your adrenaline will keep you from getting cold. And the pool-spa is set at an inviting and relaxing 26-27 degrees.
They even have a double zip line that allows you to glide above the tree tops! There’s so much more to enjoy too, like the Cabanas. Pamper yourself with a private cabana and feel like you’re at some tropical destination. There are add-on activities you can purchase also.

Waterparks are a lot of fun, especially for kids. The difficult part of it all is waiting in long lines. Sometimes you’re waiting for over 30 minutes for a 30 second ride! But, once you’re sliding down a refreshing and thrilling slide, it kind of makes it all worth it.
