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
- Women’s Change Room renovation will take place from August 28 to October 27, 2017
- Men’s Change Room renovation will take place from October 30 to December 22, 2017
The Change Room renovation project will be completed in phases to minimize impacts to the public as much as possible.
When the Women’s Change Room is closed for renovation, the public is asked to use the Family Change Room for the interim. As soon as the Women’s Change Room renovation is complete and reopened, the Men’s Change Room will be closed and the public is asked to use the Family Change Room.
We do have other change rooms available in the Community Centre that will continue to be available during the closures.
Please try to be as quick as possible when using our Family Change Room during the renovation to minimize wait times.
Thank your understanding and cooperation.
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.
