With hot weather in the forecast, Vancouverites can cool off in two outdoor pools that will remain open for an extra two weeks this season.

New Brighton Park pool in East Vancouver and the Second Beach pool in Stanley Park generally close after Labour Day, but the Vancouver Park Board will keep them open until September 17th.

But if you’ve been planning to go for a swim in the Kitsilano Pool this summer, you’re running out of time.

Kits Pool will be closing on September 5th and there won’t be any last minute extensions as it is closing for renovations.

So take a dip while you can. Kits pool is currently open from 7:00am to 7:30pm Monday to Friday and 9:00am to 7:30pm on weekends.

Kitsilano Pool is Vancouver’s only heated saltwater swimming pool. The outdoor summer pool is 137 metres long (almost three times longer than an Olympic pool) and has 3 slides.

Because it’s so close to Kits beach, one of the top 5 beaches in Vancouver, it appears to be a turquoise extension of the ocean.
