Vancouver is gorgeous in Spring time, and it offers some amazing colors in the Fall. But nothing compares to the fun you will find when Vancouver is 79° and sunny! Vancouver offers a variety of attractions, golden beaches, refreshing water activities and ‘fun in the sun’ activities for everyone to enjoy all summer long.
1. Splash Parks
Summer just isn’t summer without splashing around in the water on a hot day. Kids ages 1 to 12 love the many water spray parks that Vancouver has to offer. Stop by Granville Island Water Spray Park and cool off with your kiddies. Let your little ones splash around in the water spray park and on splash pads while the older kids enjoy the bright yellow water slide.
Another fun water spray park is Rainbow Playland at Queen’s Park in New Westminster. This playground features a big water spray park, a petting farm, picnic tables and two playgrounds designed with families in mind. Also a must-do when in Vancouver is the water spray area at Connaught Park in Kitsilano. This park is surrounded by lush catalpa and oak trees, and there are plenty of places for parents to sit in the shade and watch their little ones have fun in the water.
2. Beluga Whales at the Vancouver Aquarium
Nothing says fun like visiting over 50,000 animals and species! The Vancouver Aquarium is Canada’s largest aquarium that connects thousands of visitors every year with the natural world. Kids can see busy penguins at Penguin Point, enjoy Behind the Scenes Tours and animal encounters, as well as a variety of animal spotlights and educational experiences. In the summertime, there are multiple exciting exhibitions and spotlights to see with your little ones.
3. Double-Decker Bus Ride
4. Visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge
Challenge yourself to great heights as you make your way across the 230-foot-high Capilano Suspension Bridge. Some kids (and adult kids!) may find it a little scary on their first time crossing, but once you get the hang of it, it’s a fantastic journey with picturesque views.
5. Cool Off at Kitsilano Pool
Take a dip with the kids in the large and always popular heated salt-water pool, located on the golden beachfront of Kitsilano, also referred to a “Kits.” Let the kids comb the beach for colourful shells, pebbles and rocks, while you bask in the glorious sun of Vancouver, BC, Canada. When you visit this hot spot in the summer, you can enjoy stunning views of the magnificent mountains and the colourful city skyline while you splash around and have fun. You can check out the current Kitsilano pool summer calendar here.
Have a beautiful summer everyone! We're open regular hours and would be happy to check your vehicles to ensure safety while you drive to places and enjoy what Summer has to offer!
