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.

  • Beautiful pool right on the beach - saltwater, long, with great scenery. Great place to visit in the summer!  more »
  • This is an amazing pool for many reasons. You get a great workout with the 137m lengths. It's great for small kids although I'd like more options of small slides for them. It's a great place to picnic...  more »
  • A great space for pool bath, situated by the waters of the Kitsilano Beach. You pay the ticket which entitles you to attend the pool all day. The pool is 100 metres long and has lanes for swimming and wading area, especially for children. The place offers changing rooms and bathrooms for the comfort of the user. In the summer of Vancouver, the place is very frequented by the locals and the freshwater swimming pool, has a very good temperature.

  • 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.
  • Kitsilano Pool, Beach & Showboat a stunning location with local mountains & Stanley Park in the background! Outdoor Aquafit classes are fantastic during Summer sunny warm months!
  • 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!
