Installed at Kits beach back in 1996, the Kitsilano Wind Swimmer was inspired by an old man who swam regularly off Stanley Park. The artist, Doug Taylor, decided that he wanted to build him a mate to swim along with him.
After so many years, the Wind Swimmer is in need or restoration. Kits pool is currently selling postcards to raise funds for her restoration. If you happen to go for a swim or are in the neighbourhood, you can get more information on how you can help at the front desk.
