Vancouver’s outdoor pools open this weekend for the season, serving up refreshing summer fun and swimming lessons in our communities. The best part about Vancouver Park Board outdoor pools is that they are heated and they have one-of-a-kind seaside locations.

    YAY ~ I can’t wait for Maple Grove. It’s a bit of a drive for us, but it’s our family’s favourite place to go on a hot summer night after work, for a swim and a picnic on the grassy hills and then a play in the adjacent park if there’s still time. I’ll be SO sad when our boys grow too big for this shallow pool!
