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.

Location

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.

Hours

The Lumberman's Arch Spray Park is closed until a review of options for remediation is complete.

If the spray park can be renovated, we will assess how this meets the Park Board's policies and ensure it is aligned with the Stanley Park Comprehensive Plan, which is being created in partnership with the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Selí̓ lw̓ itulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations, on whose unceded territory the park sits.

The nearest alternative spray parks are at Second Beach Pool and Harbour Green Park.
