MacPherson Outdoor Pool

July 16, 2024:

The pool temperature will be slightly cooler than normal today, due to mechanical issues. Sorry for any inconvenience!

Fresh air, cool water–it's time to make a splash outdoors

Situated in Lewarne Park (formerly MacPherson Park), this heated outdoor pool is a favourite spot in south Burnaby. 

Reminder: Swim lessons run rain or shine at outdoor pools.
