Kitsilano Pool, Vancouver

4.5
#1 of 22 in Theme Parks in British Columbia
Just beside Kitsilano Beach sits Canada's longest pool, Kitsilano Pool. This 137.5 m (450 ft) long, saltwater swimming pool is known as "Kit's pool" by the locals. The clear water reflects a turquoise color, reminiscent of a tropical island but without the sand. You can practice your form in the roped section as you take in views of the city and the ocean. The site also offers a picnic area on the grass nearby as well as a playground and volleyball courts.

    This is one of the biggest outdoor pools I have ever been to. It's it's right along the ocean. It was fun to bring my family there to end one of our days in Vancouver. One of the downfalls of this poo...  more »

    Pool was larger than looks from road with lots of room for families to swim. There is a dedicated swim lane which was kind of annoying as only few swimmers there limiting total use. Slide and ease gra...  more »

    One of the best swimming pools in North America for the views, the length: 137m or something like 150 yards long. Heated water, salty at the start of the season as they fill-up with sea water, then less and less as they top it up with fresh water. Great place to people watch on sunny days too. Fantastic place, a must see!

    Great pool! Busy, but still easy to swim in. Lots of room to lay around the deck to soak up the sun. Lots of people chattering during the busy time, but oh well. Saltwater pool was def. an awesome experience.

    Awesome public pool. Incredibly cheap entry fees for families, well done! The water needs to be a bit warmer, saw a swimming instructor wearing a wet suit in the pool back in July :-)

    The longest salt water swimming pool in Canada.. gets crowded during nice hot days for good reason!
