The days are getting shorter and the weather drearier, but that’s no reason to hole up at home with a cup of hot chocolate every day (although — we won’t judge if you do). From therapy spas and lap pools for you to water slides and aquatic rock climbing walls for the kids, here are some of the best indoor pools across Canada, so you can backstroke your winter doldrums away.
UBC Aquatic Centre — Vancouver, B.C.
The new state-of-the-art aquatic centre at the University of British Columbia is sustainable and accessible. In addition to having a gorgeous recreational pool, 50-metre competition pool and spacious hot tub, it was also built with the environment in mind — the centre makes use of Vancouver’s plentiful rainwater and was purposely built near a bus hub for easy public transit access.
