Outdoor pools in Vancouver are set to reopen on May 22, 2021 as the Victoria Day weekend gets underway. There will be a reduced maximum capacity for usage and users will be able to book blocks of time online, as was the case in 2020. The booking facility will open starting May 19th. The Park Board website will have further links to the booking time slots as these are brought online. The three outdoor pools that will reopen are the Second Beach (Stanley Park), Kitsilano and New Brighton pools. Last year the pools only reopened in July in response to new safety protocols.
