Watermania is an amazing aquatic centre in Richmond. The facility has a 57-metre swimming pool, diving boards, wave pool, water slides, whirlpools and more.
Richmond’s Top Aquatic Centre
At 14300 Entertainment Boulevard in Richmond, Watermania is located in a big-box entertainment district. Next door is a SilverCity Cineplex Theatre, Extreme Air Park (a giant indoor trampoline adventure park), a Go Bananas facility (for little kids), a bowling alley and an ice-skating complex.
If you can’t find an exciting place for your children close by, you won’t find one anywhere! It’s not for nothing that Watermania has been voted Richmond’s Best Family Amusement Centre. The aquatic centre is family-friendly, wheelchair accessible and offers complimentary public Wi-Fi.
In addition to its giant swimming pool, Watermania has 1-, 3- and 5-metre diving boards, a wave pool, water slides, whirlpools and more, including a 3,000-square foot fitness centre.
The main pool at the centre is 190 feet long. The wave pool features a seahorse structure that dumps water into buckets that tip over (which is fun for kids). The facility also features a sauna and steam room.
Pool Admission Fees
Pool fees at Watermania typically range from about $5 for children (ages 2 to 12) up to close to $7.65 for adults, or around $18 for a family of four. (Note: Exact rates are subject to change and may well have gone up since the last time we checked.)
Shopping in the Area
While you’re in the area, and if it’s the warmer half of the year, consider stopping in at the Richmond Country Farms at 12900 Steveston Highway. This is one of the Lower Mainland’s best fresh fruit and vegetable stands, open from April until the late fall.
