Aquatic Centre

Learn to swim, improve your front crawl, play in the water, soak in the hot tub—all kinds of activities take place at the Aquatic Centre. The ozonated water treatment process means chlorine levels are lower than standard pools. Leisure, fitness and rehabilitation programs are all available for you here.

Change Room Renovations

The Men’s and Women’s Aquatic Centre Change Rooms are closed for renovations on the following dates:

Women’s Change Room: August 28 to November 20, 2017
Men’s Change Room: November 19 to January 22, 2018

The Men’s Change Room will be closed for renovations starting on Sunday, November 19 and is scheduled to re-open on Monday, January 22, 2018.

Please direct any questions related to the Change Room renovation project to John Wong, Manager of Facilities and Assets at 604-921-3420 or

When the Men’s Change Room is closed for renovation, the public is asked to use the Universal Change Room.

Please keep in mind that we have other change rooms in the Community Centre that will continue to be available during the closures. Please try to be as quick as possible when using our Universal Change Room during the renovation to minimize wait times. Please keep an eye out for Change Room renovation update notices.

In order to minimize wait times and to ensure that you arrive at your scheduled programs or lessons on time, we suggest the following (where possible):
• Arrive at the Aquatic Centre ready to swim, with bathing suit on
• Arrive early to give yourself extra time
• Make use of the Community Men’s and Women’s Centre Change Rooms (located by Gymnastics)
• Shower and change at home (bring a robe for your child to wear home over their swimsuit if possible)

We greatly appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we work to improve the change rooms.

Aquatic Centre Expansion Project

In 2014, the District asked for feedback regarding proposed improvements and expansion to the West Vancouver Aquatic Centre change rooms. Following a review of community feedback and in order to address community needs and facility requirements, a proposed plan for expansion has now been developed.

This much-needed addition has been approved and construction will begin in the fall of 2017 on the west side of the Aquatic Centre adjacent to 22nd Street.

This project is anticipated to be complete in the fall of 2018. Due to the location of the large Redwood tree (Sequoia sempervirens) and the proximity of its complex root system to the construction area and existing Aquatic Centre infrastructure, it has been determined that this tree must be removed. Bird nesting season is now complete and the tree has been scheduled for removal by a licensed tree company in mid-October.

All construction will be completed in accordance with District bylaws.

Thank you in advance as we complete these necessary facility improvements.
