Are you looking for a kid-friendly way to cool down this summer? Burnaby has you covered! Over 25% of the city is parkland and included in that list are outdoor pools, spray pads and wading pools, perfect for picking up lunch and letting the kids cool down. Check out the list below, and let us know which spots you will be checking out.

Outdoor Pools

An outdoor swim is a perfect addition to any summer day. It is a great way to burn off some energy while cooling down. If you are looking to take a dip, Burnaby has four outdoor pools for you to visit. All of the pools are located in beautiful, scenic parks, surrounded by stunning views of nature. Please double-check the website for up-to-date operating hours.

Spray Parks

Perfect for kids (or kids at heart), Burnaby’s eight push-button spray pads let you cool down quickly. It’s fun, free, doesn’t require swimming skills, and best of all, parents get to stay dry! All spray parks (except for Cameron Park, it closes at 8:00pm) are open from 9:00am – 9:00pm, so there is never a wrong time to visit. Spray parks are open until the end of September. Our tip? Pick up take-out from one of Burnaby’s excellent restaurants and dine al fresco at the park! Find the spay parks here:

Wading Pools

In between and pool and a spray pad, Burnaby has ten wading pools for your enjoyment.  These free pools close on August 26, 2023. Wading pools have different operating hours depending on the locations. At only a couple inches deep, these sun-heated wading pools are perfect for dipping your feet or young explorers not ready for the deep end. Pools will begin to drain 30 minutes before park activities end, so please allow yourself come early. You can find wading pools at these parks:
