The sun is shining and the weather is warm, which means a refreshing dip in a swimming hole must be on the agenda! This is your sign to pay a visit to the gorgeous Emerald Lake quarry.

Located less than an hour outside of Toronto in the town of Puslinch, Emerald Lake is described as a five-acre quarry lake with “pollution-free” spring-fed waters.

The stunning lake is 15 to 40 feet deep, and it is equipped with huge floating water toys that the whole family will love.

That includes floating trampolines, a rock-climbing wall, Saturn, a teeter-totter, and an obstacle course. Plus, a 200-foot water slide empties into its own separate pool!

It has a kiddie pool for the little ones and a splash pad complete with water guns, sprinklers, and a large pink mushroom.

Around the lake, there is also a sandy beach and 18 regulation-sized volleyball courts, as well as a snack bar, picnic areas, and private pavillions you can rent for special events.

All are welcome and there are life vests for rent on-site for safety.

The quarry is located on the grounds of a trailer resort, which has over 200 sites where you can spend the night.

That includes camping facilities, cabins for rent, and RV accommodations.

However, you don’t need to plan an overnight stay to enjoy the beautiful spring-fed quarry.

You can get day passes and no reservations are necessary to visit.

So, what’re you waiting for? Round up your crew and hit the quarry for some fun in the sun!
