Kitsilano Pool will remain open one extra week

138

Don’t pack away that swimsuit yet. Thanks to the installment of summer weather in September, the Kits pool will remain open one extra week until September 18. If you’ve never been, even the Vancouver Park Board describes Kits Pool as a “happening place.”

Here’s their blurb on the pool’s long (get it?) history:

“Kitsilano Pool, Vancouver’s largest draw & fill salt water pool was opened at the water’s edge in 1931 and became an instant success. It was replaced in 1979 by an oceanside tank (about 150 meters at its outer most edge) which sports salt water and is heated.”
