There’s a hidden outdoor pool and sports complex atop a TTC station

The crowds milling around Wellesley Station sweating on the pavements might not know there’s actually an outdoor swimming pool right above them.

A swimming pool and sports center has actually been above the metro station for years, but you can be forgiven for not knowing.

It is integrated with the rental building at 15 Dundonald, also known as the Continental Tower, as the town planner pointed out @Patune on Twitter.

The building has studios, one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments, and some one-bedroom rooms are currently available if you’re interested in getting in on some sweet pool action. One-Bedroom Junior Rooms start at $1,973.

The sports center has a basketball court and a tennis court, and the property also has a lounge. Of course, if you live here, another plus is the short walk to the metro.

The apartment tower and the bridge were built over the station in 1971.

So while you might not be able to look up and see some of these things from the street, sometimes it’s worth looking out the windows of taller downtown buildings to see what’s hiding beneath your nose.
