Water & spray parks in Vancouver
A perfect way to cool off in the summer without needing any ability to swim whatsoever, Vancouver’s water parks and splash pads are fun for both kids and adults. The Park Board operates several wading pools, shallow concrete tanks of water, mainly in neighbourhood parks. They are supervised during the hours posted at the pool.
Not to be confused with the city's wading pools, splash pads consist of unexpected water spouts, cannon streams, flower showers and more. Many splash pads have limited or no supervision and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
NOTE: In extreme drought, wading pools may be closed due to water restrictions.
