Vancouver’s Best Outdoor Swimming Pools

Vancouver Swimming Pools

Metro Vancouver has a number of great outdoor swimming pools including ones at Kitsilano, Second Beach, New Brighton and other parks in the Lower Mainland.

Outdoor swimming pools provide fun ways to cool down. Some of the best in the region offer ocean views, slides and other amenities for families to enjoy.



The majority of outdoor pools in the Lower Mainland typically open during the months of May and June, and they usually remain open until the early fall.

Most outdoor pools in Metro Vancouver are open for the summer season in 2022. The Kitsilano pool was damaged by storms earlier this year, but the park board hopes to reopen the pool on July 30th. For more information and the exact schedules for each location, please refer to their respective websites.


Lower Mainland Outdoor Swimming Pools

Metro Vancouver is home to over two dozen outdoor pools, many of which offer lessons and activities to participate in throughout the summer. The pools at New Brighton Park, Kitsilano and Second Beach boast stunning ocean and other waterfront views, whereas many others are located in more urban areas. Each outdoor pool has its own perks that appeal to swimmers in different ways.
