Soak Up Some Fun in the Sun at Kin Pool

Feb 10, 2017

Did you know? Nanaimo's first public, and only outdoor, swimming pool is the Kin Pool located in Bowen Park.


The pool was built in partnership with the Nanaimo Kinsmen Club in the 1960's. It's now operated by the Nanaimo White Rapids Summer Swim Club who use it as a training pool and for swim meets. They also offer summer swimming lessons and public swimming.

The pool opens in May and weekend public swimming starts at the beginning of June. The pool is then opened up on weekdays at the end of June to public swimming, aquafit classes and adult lengths swiming. For more information on public schedules check out the Nanaimo White Rapids website
