Vancouver’s popular Kitsilano pool opens for summer – BC
Vancouver’s Kitsilano Pool is finally reopening just in time for the long weekend.
The outdoor saltwater pool suffered major damage during a storm in January.

It reopens today but now faces another challenge, a shortage of lifeguards affecting the whole country.
The Vancouver Park Board said the number of swimmers allowed in the pool depends on the number of lifeguards available.
“I just got out of the Kits pool. I had my feet in it and it feels good,” said Kitsilano Pool spokesperson Donnie Rosa.
“I can’t wait for people to get into the pool, and we’re doing our best to make sure we have enough lifeguards to keep it open for the hours the public wants it open.”
The park board advises swimmers who wish to take a dip in the pool to book a reservation through the town’s website.
