Summer 2020 Update - Updated May 20
Dear Dixie members, As you may know, public pools have not yet received the authorization to open this summer from the province and the city of Montreal. If we receive the go ahead to open, Dixie pool would open under special operating conditions. We have just sent a survey via email to the membership to get your opinion.

Summer 2020 Update - Updated May 1
Due to the current pandemic the 2020 season won't be like last year. Which is why Dixie will be stopping membership enrolments until further notice (those who have already paid will be getting refunds). We are currently waiting for information from the provincial government as well as the city of Montreal as to whether the pool will be opening this summer and if so, what measures will need to be put in place to ensure our staffs’ and members’ health and safety. As soon as we have more details, we will be notifying Dixie members.

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.
