This was the best swim center I have ever been to for toddlers! It is a large warm area complete with a variety of toys. It is in a separate area so kids and parents can watch the fun time guaranteed for little ones ....More

On a visit to Vancouver, just before the outdoor heated pools opened on Victoria Day, this was a great experience on a chilly day. Used to outdoor 50m pools Down Under, it was great to swim under partial glass. Changing rooms for women: plenty of...More

West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines
