Water parks and wading pools

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!

All water park hours have been extended from 9am to 10pm during the current heat wave.

Water parks

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.

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