Water parks and wading pools

Prince Edward spray park

The Vancouver Park Board's water parks and wading pools are the perfect way for people of all ages to cool off in the summer.

It's fun, free, and there's no swimming necessary!

Water parks

Note All the water parks listed below are open during the stage 1 regional waste use restrictions.

Our water parks delight with unexpected water spouts, cannon streams, flower showers, and more.

We're proud that all water parks now have push buttons to turn on the water for five minutes at a time. It's one way we're following the water restrictions.

Most water parks have limited or no supervision and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
