Vancouver Aquatic Centre

Area: Downtown

The best lap pool in the city. We always appreciate 50-meter pools that don't permanently maintain the bulkhead in the middle. You'll want to call the office to check on daily swim schedules, lessons, and the like, but you should be able to find a time for your long course desires. They have an online schedule, too, in case you can't reach the Centre.

The concrete exterior gives the building an airplane hangar feel, but it's a competition pool with competition features, lane lines, bottom stripes, backstroke flags, pace clocks, etc. The glass roof affords plenty of natural light, which may necessitate tinted goggles on sunny days. From late July through the beginning of September the Aquatic Centre is closed for annual maintenance so look to other options during this time.

It's a hair over $5 to lap away here ($5.38CAD) and, for those driving here, there's an adjacent $1/hour parking lot.
