Vancouver may not have a lot of outdoor pools, but the ones we have are some of the most picturesque in the world. Take the kids for a splash in the turquoise waters this summer and soak up the views.
Best outdoor pools in Vancouver
Second Beach Pool
Heated outdoor pool near the beach, forest and trails of Stanley Park. Perfect place for kids to cool off in the summer heat, and close to Stanley Park playground, seawall and West End.
Stanley Park Drive, Vancouver
Vancouver’s only saltwater swimming pool. A pool with ocean and city views, close to the lively scene at Kits Beach.
2305 Cornwall St.
The cute outdoor pool attached to the Hillcrest indoor pool is a great way to get a little outdoors fun, with a hot tub with a short walk. Sprayers and shallow areas abound.

New Brighton Pool
Heated outdoor pool in Vancouver’s Sunrise neighbourhood, East Vancouver. A hidden gem of a pool overlooking Burrard Inlet and North Vancouver.
New Brighton Park
Maple Grove Pool
This local gem in Kerrisdale is a family-favourite. Graded entry, fun spray fountain, and surrounded by lush grass, it’s ideal for little ones … and picnics.
6875 Yew St, Vancouver
Great little neighbourhood pool in Richmond’s Steveston neighbourhood. Great on a hot summer day, and located next to a playground and Steveston Village’s shops and cafes.
