This outdoor pool is beside Kitsilano beach is one of the largest in Vancouver. It's clean, not cold and fenced with lifeguards in strategic places. There are shallow parts for children and lap lanes for the athletics. Although it is a saltwater pool, the taste of the water was not salty at all. The temperature of the water is just... More

This is a city-run huge heated saltwater pool with lifeguards on duty. Flat rates are cheap to stay as long as you wish. Free parking nearby. Bring own towels.

We visited on warm but cloudy August day, and found that our 2,5 year old was ready to come up after 2 min teeth chattering. Other than that, the pool itself is impressive and nice. The locker rooms, toilets etc are quite run-down.

Here is great..salt water and outdoors and yet by the ocean. You can do laps or just relax and as you swim you can overlook the mountains , be in the sun, or just relax and let your kids swims.

What a wonderful way to round off a warm day in Vancouver The pool is well supervised and there was a relaxing atmosphere even though it was very busy. Felt relaxed after leaving on all our visits with family.

Our two year old had a great time with my wife and friend. Lots of room for every level and not too cold. Reasonably priced with friendly staff.

Like the Stanley Park pool this is heated and in a great location. Get the family ticket and spend a couple of hours.

On a warm day you could happily stay all day. The pool is enormous and the views are stunning. We really envy the locals who can, and obviously do, come regularly. You need to bring a picnic and make the most of it.

Neighborhood Profile
Kitsilano
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
