Kitsilano Pool, Vancouver

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.

  • Good for kids as half the pool (side-wise) is shallow and it i also one of the longer pools (more than 50m i think) for distance training. Plus it's basically on the beach.  more »
  • The kids loved it, adults loved it, it's not super cheap but it's a lot of fun so what the heck :) :) :)  more »
  • We live near Kits Beach and regularly go to Kits pool. Its the longest salt water pool in North America for if you swim laps. It's November here now and the pool is under a major renovation to update ...  more »

  • The pool is great but the change facility is much to be desired. Really needs a renovation. Paint off the walls and dirty worn change benches.
  • Absolutely amazing place. This year enjoyed it with my little one. Good price. Monthly pass is also available if you want to visit it on the regular basis.
  • Just love this place, with the view over the ocean and the mountains. Obviously it's more quiet during the week days. If you want to swim at your own rythm, avoid the 2 lines that are closer to the ocean.
  • 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!
  • Large and clean pool. No smell of bleach which is nice. Went on a Tuesday afternoon so wasn't too busy. Very reasonable admission fee. Kids friendly.
