Kitsilano Pool - Review
The Kitsilano Pool is the only saltwater swimming pool in Vancouver and offers a warm pool along with a sauna and a whirlpool. There are 3 slides at the pool and many cafes around that are perfect to grab a bite after a rejuvenating time in the water.
The pool is an extension of Kitsilano Beach (one of Vancouver's most popular beaches) and is 3 times longer than a standard Olympic pool- yet another reason that makes this place an absolute must-see during your stay in the city!

Kitsilano Pool, Vancouver Reviews
Love swimming here but it does get really packed. It is 133.5 m in length and it is a salt water pool. You'll definitely feel that you float a bit better than other swimming pools. Bring a quarter or your own lock for the locker. Bring a beach towel if you want to lounge around as well. You'll get a great view of the north shore mountains while you swim. Best to come during week days.
This pool is terrific for swimming during summer. With a length of 137m it's a nice change from your traditional 25 or 50m lap pools and can provide a challenge when you run out of steam half way! With the size it never seems busy even on the hottest days in summer. And the best thing about it are the views of English Bay and the mountains behind it. One of the most scenic outdoor pools I've ever been to.
My favourite thing about Vancouver and a perfect example of tax dollars in action! It’s a phenomenal public facility. Don’t be intimidated by the size of it if you’re not a confident swimmer. There’s plenty of open space for splashing about too, and great for kids starting off with a nice “beach” style sloping access option to the pool on the south side. If you’re an endurance swimmer the 137m length is so good for training. Catch a sunrise in the morning when catching a breath at the end of a length - or a sunset bouncing off the glass of the skyline. It’s magnificent either way. The new renovations were a great investment and have improved the overall experience.
This is a beautiful pool with an amazing view. Thanks to recent renovations it's not as freezing cold as it used to be and people can finally enjoy being in the water for a long time without turning blue. I have no complaints about the pool at the moment but only give it 3 stars because of the issues around the pool. 1. The bathrooms and change rooms are absolutely disgusting. The floor in the change room was flooded 2 days in a row with a massive puddle in the middle. The super wet floors are a slip and fall hazard for everyone especially children and seniors. The toilets are atrocious! The yucky wet floors with hair everywhere, dirty toilets, doors that don't lock. Yuk! What bugs me is that there are actual solutions for this mess. There are special hard plastic mesh tiles for that specific reason. Water goes through them to the actual floor underneath and people walk on non slippery dry-ish surface and if they accidentally drop a towel or piece of clothing on the floor it's not drenched in gross toilet water. Also they need to hire a full time cleaner for the bathrooms. Just like in the malls. 2. The grass area around the pool is really dry and creates such a sticky mess of dry grass and dirt on towels and clothes. Why don't we get rid of the grass all together and replace it with sand or small gravel or water it to keep it green? Perhaps add more lounge chairs etc. 3. How about selling some decent snacks? It's a good revenue for the pool too. People have to leave the pool area to go get a sandwich or coffee. That's so inconvenient. Why not have a small store there instead of the vending machine? I bet if they offer fresh fruit like berries it'll sell like hot cakes. Final tip: if you want to do serious swimming and get a few uninterrupted laps go after 6 or 7 pm. It's much less busy and most kids are gone by then.
Loved this pool! Great for families, there were plenty of changing room and bathroom facilities. The swallow portion of the pool was extensive. Even with multiple families using the shallow portion of the pool, you still felt like you had so much space to swim and splash around and have fun! Staff was friendly and the pool and facilities were clean. This was a salt water heated pool. We went on a mild weather day and the pool was really very enjoyable! I highly recommend this pool to all those who love water and fun. It has a beautiful view.
