Stanley Park water park

Playing in the water spray park in Stanley Park in Vancouver

Splash around at the Variety Kids Water Park in Stanley Park, a perfect summertime destination for visitors of all ages. A popular place to cool off for pedestrians and cyclists, the park is unsupervised, and is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.


Located next to the seawall at Lumbermen's Arch, close to wheelchair-accessible washrooms, the water park is also a short walk from popular family-friendly attractions such as the Miniature Train, Train Station playground, and the Vancouver Aquarium.

Make use of the surrounding grassy area, nearby concession stand, and picnic tables for a snack and to dry off.


The spray pad is open from 10am to 7pm, seven days a week. It will close for the season at the end of September.

The nearest alternative to cool off are at Second Beach Pool and the spray pad at Harbour Green Park.
