Kitsilano Pool, Vancouver

Water Park · Hidden Gem · Water / Amusement Park
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.

  • Nothing marks the beginning of the summer season in Vancouver like the opening of its Kitsilano Pool. This year, of course, it is different. Perched between land & ocean, it is there for all to see.....  more »
  • It was some years back when I was at the wonderful Kits Pool with my granddaughter & grandson when my granddaughter, an avid & enthusiastic swimmer & only about five years then, surveyed the pool...  more »
  • Enjoy the breathtaking views and people that are swimming in this huge outdoor pool. Great option for sun tanners too.  more »
  • This place is beautiful, people who live here suffer from super expensive real estate, etc. I won't recommend dating anyone from these area! Breath taking sunset view.
  • Great place to swim laps. Gets packed easily but you can still find your own comfortable space for swimming laps.
  • Hopefully this year I can go sit on the stage seating beside the pool without the early morning pool workers (males) commenting and staring at me while saying juvenile comments. This was not a one time thing for me. One example is, I was on the phone and for whatever reason two males stopped working and stared at me making comments to each other while laughing (its odd, next time I am going to film it)
  • Best kept secret place to get a nice suntan in the early spring and late fall, is on the stage of the Kitsilano Showboat
  • Love swimming here but it does get really packed. It is 133.5 m in length and it is a salt water pool. You'll definitely feel that you float a bit better than other swimming pools. Bring a quarter or your own lock for the locker. Bring a beach towel if you want to lounge around as well. You'll get a great view of the north shore mountains while you swim. Best to come during week days.
