After weeks of repairs, Kits Pool has reopened for public swimming.
But it now faces another challenge, a lifeguard shortage that’s affecting the entire country. The Vancouver Park Board has said the amount of swimmers allowed in the pool will depend on the number of available lifeguards.
The park board is advising swimmers who want to take a dip in the pool to book a reservation through the city’s website. So, if you’re feeling lucky, you can secure your tickets here:
Tickets for swim sessions are released 3 days prior to the swim at 12:00pm. Sessions are 60 minutes for length swimming and 2 hours and 15 minutes for a public swim.
Lap Swimming (60 minute sessions)
- 7:00am – 8:00am
- 8:15am – 9:15am
Public Swimming (2 hour 15 minute sessions)
- 9:30am – 11:45am
- 12:15pm – 2:30pm
- 3:00pm – 5:15pm
- 5:45pm – 7:45pm
Just in time for the warm weather we’ve been waiting for, we’re excited to announce Kitsilano Pool will reopen for public swimming this Saturday, July 30!— Vancouver Board of Parks and Recreation (@ParkBoard) July 26, 2022
