Summer is at our doorstep, and while BC isn’t short on natural beauty to explore, if you don’t feel like hiking on a 30 degree day we’ve rounded up some Lower Mainland’s best water parks around so you can chill while still enjoying the rays.
Lower Mainland’s Best Water Parks Worth the Drive: Cultus Lake
BC’s largest water park is just a short, two hour drive along Highway #1 from Vancouver. With a variety of water slide types for all levels, Cultus Lake Waterpark is truly fun for the whole family. Bonus? It’s right next to Cultus Lake Adventure Park for double the fun!
4150 Columbia Valley Highway, Cultus
Best Free Water Park: Granville Island
While Cultus Lake might be the largest, Granville Island’s popular, tot-friendly water park is the largest free water park in all of North America — smack-dab in the middle of VanCity. Providing all-day fun in different zones (think big-kid friendly features plus dedicated toddler areas). It is located next to a grassy picnic patch and close to the Granville Island Public Market for fresh summer eats.

Best New Water Park: Big Splash Water Park
Only 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver, the newly-opened Big Splash Water Park is the renovated former Splashdown Waterslides in Tsawwassen. Featuring Western Canada’s only Bommerango Tube slide with a vertical ascent, plus new kids splash park, clubhouse, restaurant options, and “adult only” zones Big Splash . Visit their site for a detailed upgrade list and calendar of events.

Best Water Park For An Afternoon Getaway: Steveston
Easy access, free admission, adjacent playground and the quaint fishing village setting make the Steveston Village Water Park a family favourite. Featuring two areas designed for preschool-aged children along with a more advanced zone for older children, it is also mobility challenged-friendly. Grab lunch from one of Steveston’s many locally-run eateries, snag a picnic table, and enjoy a low-key afternoon just a short skytrain ride away from Vancouver.
