Although the sun has yet to come, it is nice to know where to cool off when the hot days come. So have your swimsuits ready and head to one of the swimming pools Metro Vancouver has to offer.
There are plenty of swimming pools around Vancouver, and you can pick between indoor, outdoor or natural pools. To spend time with friends, work out, or keep cool, whatever you’re looking to, there is always a pool that suits your needs.

Located in the western side of Kitsilano Beach, this is a pool different from the others as it is the only saltwater swimming pool in Vancouver. Add the cafe, the beach and the gorgeous view of the ocean and you have a place to spend the whole day.
Hillcrest Aquatic Centre
Close to Queen Elizabeth Park, the Hillcrest Aquatic Centre has an outdoor pool, an indoor pool, a fitness centre, a huge hot tub and more. The largest public aquatic centre in Vancouver is a legacy of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games.
30 Foot Pool in Lynn Canyon Park
This beautiful natural pool is located in Lynn Valley Park in North Vancouver, and its ice cold water is a great way to cool off during a hot day. Some people choose just to sit on the rocks in the shade, but if you’re brave enough, get into the 30 foot pool and you won’t regret it. In the same park you will find the Lynn Valley Suspension Bridge and several trails varying in length and difficulty. Just remember to be safe and stay in the 30 foot pool stagnant water.
