Spray parks and wading pools

The Vancouver Park Board's spray 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!

COVID-19 update: spray parks

Spray parks at Connaught, Grandview, Hastings, Oak, Prince Edward, Pandora, Garden, Harbour Green, and Stanley Park Lumberman's Arch are now open.

Spray parks at Chaldecott, Maclean, Norquay, and Crab park will open June 12.

Wading pools will begin operation from July 1.

Spray parks

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

We're proud that all spray 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 spray parks have limited or no supervision and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Note Our spray parks have user-activated switches allowing them to operate during stages 1 to 3 of the regional water use restrictions. Spray parks will close if we enter stage 4
