Kits Pool feels like an escape with its white bottom, turquoise water, and scenic views of the North Shore mountains and the Vancouver skyline. It’s not just any pool experience; it's a picturesque journey into relaxation.

Canada's Longest Pool

At 137 meters (450 feet), Kits Pool is not only the longest saltwater swimming pool in Canada but also of the entire continent of North America. Its length is almost three times the size of an Olympic pool, offering ample space for swimmers to stretch out and enjoy.

  • Purchase tickets online the day before your visit.
  • Drop-in entry is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
  • Clean swimwear is a must as change rooms are not available.
  • Lockers, merchandise, and towel rentals are unavailable.
  • Lap swimming sessions are 45 minutes, while public swimming sessions are 90 minutes.
  • Admission prices vary based on pod size and age group.

Accessibility and Amenities

Kits Pool is wheelchair accessible and offers aquatic wheelchairs and a dedicated pool lift, ensuring that everyone can enjoy its waters. Additionally, it boasts a water park, two slides, and ample parking nearby.

Kitsilano Pool is not just a place to swim; it's a Vancouver institution where locals and visitors alike come to unwind, soak up the sun, and revel in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. So, dive in and experience the magic of Kits Pool for yourself!

A Legacy of Almost a Century

Kits Pool first opened in 1931. It was originally filled by the tidal flow from English Bay. Over the years, it has become a cherished landmark in Vancouver's aquatic landscape. In 2018, the City of Vancouver invested $3.3 million dollars to upgrade Kits Pool, ensuring it remains a top-tier destination for swimmers.
