Well folks, it looks like those hot, sunny days we ordered are finally rolling around – which means you’re probably looking for a few spots to cool off after sunbathing. Thankfully, we’ve got some solid options by way of spray parks and outdoor pools to toss your way. Let’s dive right in!

First up are the outdoor pools. While Kits Pool hasn’t reopened just yet, the re-opening date is just around the corner – so we’re including it. There are currently 4 other outdoor pools open around Vancouver, which you can purchase single adult and youth tickets for here.
