Joining the Pool

Dixie is a unique community pool with programs that grow with the kids (from Tiny Tots through Leaders onto Lifeguarding); a place where kids can enjoy the true freedom of summer (activities just a walk or bike-ride away that run throughout the day–with time to see friends or enjoy a book in between); and a place to renew friendships for young & old! We are a non-profit organization where each member pays an annual registration fee. Thanks to from the borough of Lachine and the Federal government, Dixie has the lowest membership fees of all the private West Island pools.
