Kitsilano Pool will stay open an extra week this year. The Vancouver Park Board is keeping the city’s busiest outdoor public pool open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. until Sept. 18. The Kits Pool season was extended last year, too.
Kits Pool, which opened in 1931, overlooks English Bay with views of the North Shore mountains. It has the longest salt water pool in North America, with swimming lanes that stretch for 137 metres.
Outdoor pools at Second Beach in Stanley Park, New Brighton Park and Maple Grove Park will close as scheduled after the Labour Day weekend. The outdoor pool at Hillcrest Centre will close in mid-September.
