The Vancouver Park Board extended the swimming season this year at Kits Pool but that date is fast approaching. The newly renovated pool will remain open through September 23rd.

“We know how much Vancouverites value their outdoor pools and beaches, and all things aquatic. We responded to the hot, dry summer by extending pool and water park hours and are now adding more swimming days to outdoor pools on both the east and west sides of the city,” said Vancouver Park Board Chair Stuart Mackinnon.

The extended season gives swimmers a full extra week to swim at the newly renovated Kits Pool, which had a $3.3 million dollar upgrade early this year.

Upgrades included the removal and replacement of the pool basin membrane, repairs to the deck, and the addition of pumps to replenish and remove sea water. The improvements have greatly improved the water’s clarity.
