Great news, Vancouver! The beloved Kitsilano Pool is officially reopening this weekend, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.
While we love a dip in the ocean as the weather continues to warm up, we couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome back one of the city’s most iconic summertime destinations.
While several other Vancouver pools announced their reopening dates recently, Kitsilano Pool has been undergoing critical repairs over the past few months.
Thanks to the consistent sun we’ve been getting, the pool has been successfully repaired by Park staff. Due to expected high demand, swimmers are encouraged to register online in advance through Showpass.
Good news! Thanks to this stunning sunny weather and the team’s hard work, Kits Pool will reopen Sunday June 4!
