Hit the pool!

Go all out and head to BC’s iconic Kits Pool for some of the best people watching around. Try and swim a single 137 metre lap while the kids head down the slide. Then chill deck-side and admire the view of beach. Fun fact: The Kits kiosk sells kombucha on tap!

What better way to kick off summer than with ice cream? But when it comes to ice cream (or anything for that matter), do your kids always want something different? Not if you take them to ON Yogurt. With 40 toppings to choose from, organic and gluten free options, this will satisfy every kid and parent.

Keeping kids reading over the summer is recommended by most educators and browsing for books is so fun! Let the kiddos stock up on books at the local library or used bookstore. Then head over to Prado Cafe patio to dive into the latest reads under the warm sun. They have a variety of drinks (fab coffee!) and munchies too.

Cultus Lake Waterslides

BC’s largest water park has been around for 30 years and a major attraction for everyone. The park is home to 16 slides, suitable for risk takers and littles. They also offer free wifi and 5 hot tubs to relax in.
