Kitsilano Pool Rehabilitation Project

We are upgrading Kitsilano Pool. The upgrades will significantly reduce the use of potable water (approximately 430,000 gallons per month), making the water feel saltier for an enhanced swimming experience. 

Project benefits:

  • Electric power will eliminate the need for gas powered pumps during pool dewatering
  • The seawall will no longer need to be closed to accommodate dewatering pumps
  • Noise and emissions associated with gas powered pumps will be eliminated

The first stage of the structural and mechanical upgrades was completed in spring 2017. This consisted of installing a new electrical circuit to provide power to the north pool deck. 

The second stage includes:

  • Removal and replacement of the pool basin membrane, including caulking and gutter repair
  • Repair of the pool deck structure, including control joints that seal the pool
  • Supply of an electric pump to replenish sea water, and to dewater pumps 

To ensure the pool basin remains dry while we work, scaffolding with tarping will be erected over the pool and deck area after Labour Day Weekend. 

We expect work to be completed by spring 2018.

 The Kitsilano Pool season will not be extended this year. Second Beach Pool, a heated outdoor pool in Stanley Park, will remain open until September 17th.
