Kits Pool officially opens for the season on Monday, July 13th.
Not surprisingly, we’ve had dozens of Kitsilano.ca readers reach out to inquire about when reservations will open for everyone’s favorite outdoor pool.
The Vancouver Park Board has now confirmed that reservations will open on Sunday, July 12th at 9:30am.
Ticket sales will begin at 9:30am daily for time slots on the following day.
According to the Park Board, Kits Pool will reopen for a combination of designated lap swimming sessions and public swimming sessions.
Swimmers must arrive “swim ready” as change rooms will not be open and physical distancing protocols will be in place at entrances and exits and throughout the pools’ facilities. Washrooms will remain open for users.
Casual swimmers can book a 90 minute swim block, while lap swimmers can book for a 45 minute swim session. There will be a 30 minute buffer between swim periods during which time the facilities will be sanitized and prepared for the next group.
Admission to pools will be managed through a combination of an online reservation system and in-person drop-ins, all with contactless electronic payment.
