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.

  • This pool is being refurbished right now but I am sure when it opens again this summer it will be fabulous. I always have an amazing time at Kits!  more »
  • The pool is sectioned off for those who want to exercise and for those that just want to lounge in the shallow waters in the sunshine. Salt water pool in case you dislike that.  more »
  • 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 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.
