Family dives in to pool, shot is from underneath the water.

Summer is full of potential for endless days to spend time together as a family. With no schedules, warm days, and sleep-ins, it’s a time many of us look forward to. Those days can also be a bit heavy on the pocketbook, so we’ve rounded up Free Summer Activities in Metro Vancouver that are fun. We’re here to help you find ways to connect and spend time together this summer break without breaking the bank, from free gyms to free-swimming spots.

FREE Swimming in Surrey All Summer Long

If you live in Surrey, your hot pool summer is on! If you don’t live in Surrey, these pools are worth the drive for some free pool time under the sun.

We love that Planet Fitness offers a free pass to teens. They recognize the importance of teens staying physically and mentally healthy through the summer. Need to give your teen an incentive? Tell them to bring along some friends and a fun playlist. They might grumble at first, but after, they won’t be able to fight the positive vibes of those feel-good endorphins.

Visit Vancouver’s Free Museums

Beat the heat or the rain by visiting two of our Vancouver Museums. The Observatory’s motto is “To educate, inspire and evoke a sense of wonder about the Universe, our planet and space exploration.” Get inspired, and visit is by-donation.

Stroll around the Burnaby Village Museum, although you may want to bring some change for ice cream. This wonderful historical site offers complimentary admission year-round.

This fun event has a limited time for the “no fishing license requirement.” From June 17th to 19th, the provincial government has waived the requirement for residents of Canada – individuals who have lived in Canada for the preceding 12 months – to buy or carry a non-tidal (freshwater) basic fishing license.
