The summer months in Vancouver can be both warm and cool - the breeze coming in from the Pacific Ocean into English Bay can make a beautiful breezy but cool day along the West Coast. In the city however, hot or cool, the perfect place in the summer months is at the Kitsilano Swimming Pool, offering visitors a taste (literally) of the ocean with its salty water - the pool's waters are also warmed which makes it a fun and relaxing experience on its oceanside locale. Canada's longest pool, Kitsilano Beach Swimming Pool offers the sand and surf and nearby amenities making it a day trip for all ages. Its beautiful views just off the edge of the seawall truly shows the best of the West Coast and is a busy and interesting place to spend the summer in Vancouver.

On the western edge of Kitsilano Beach, along Vancouver's Seawall system is the city's largest outdoor pool. Empty throughout most of the year, the beginning of summer sees its doors open to the public offering Oceanside swimming with a view stretching from Vanier Park, across English Bay and the mountains and west to the horizon.

Kitsilano Pool was built in the 1960s offering nearby residents and visitors a place to come during the warm summer months. The pool has the distinction at 137m of being the longest pool in Canada as well as the only salt water pool in Vancouver, one of few in the world. The most interesting luxury Kitsilano Pool offers is its heated waters - making this pool one of the city's busiest. With a capacity of over 1,000 people, it can be very busy, however its beach side locale offers visitors to the pool exit and entry to the shore to explore, swim in the cooler waters or sit on the warm sand.

Kitsilano Pool offers many amenities for visitors - public change rooms and facilities, a concession stand, lifeguards on duty during the pool's open season and seating both on the pool deck and for family members opting to stay outside of pool but still keep a watchful eye on their groups.

Kitsilano Pool is a refreshing, engaging and fun activity popular in the warm months in Vancouver. The Pool opens from May long weekend in Canada (Victoria Day) until September long weekend (Labour Day).
