With summer and the hot weather comes the opportunity to break free from the indoor pool and get outside. Here we list splash parks around Vancouver that your family will be sure to enjoy.

With a separate area for toddlers, lots of shady spots and access for mobility-challenged kids, this spray park is a crowd favourite.
Mahon Park, North Vancouver
At Mahon Park, you’ll find a ton of green grass for lounging, picnic tables and some nearby forest trails to explore once kids are done playing in the water. The spray park has an area for smaller children, a must-have if your tot is a bit timid at the park.
Stanley Park’s Variety Water Park
