Monarch Park is a great east-side stop at Danforth and Coxwell. The facilities include a dog park (because four legs good, two legs bad), a 25m pool, a wading pool, a raised seating area for some pool-side lounging, and most importantly, a two-storey waterslide. This was a local pool-hopping haunt in years past, though activity has decreased as of late -- resurrecting its popularity would make it a new/old frontier for nighttime adventurers.
In a quiet patch of King St West devoid of restaurants and clubs, you can find one of Toronto’s most under-the-radar public pools. Pull up a BBQ and make this your own personal pool party -- if you’re lucky enough to catch this little pool at the right time, you and your friends could have it all to yourselves. While the barbed wire makes this pool a difficult hop, this park isn’t generally frequented by authorities, making it a favourite among pool-hoppers.
