More outdoor activities and amenities are returning to Richmond this summer.

The Steveston outdoor pool will re-open July 13 with limited capacity. Pool users are encouraged to enter and exit the pool in their swimming attire if possible, to minimize change room crowding and adhere to physical distancing protocols.

Pre-registration is required, and people can book and pay for a 50-minute session starting 10 a.m. Monday (July 6). Bookings can be made up to seven days in advance, and swimmers can book up to two hours in advance of their session start time if space is available.

Outdoor day camps will also begin July 13, with registration set to open at 10 a.m. Wednesday (July 8). Camp options include sports, arts, crafts, music, dance and games. Before and after camp care will be available at some locations.

To reserve a spot in an outdoor camp or at the pool, register online at using your MyRichmond account. Set up an account in advance at You can also register by calling 604-276-4300.

Spray parks at Steveston, King George and Burkeville will re-open tomorrow. They will be open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to dusk, weather permitting. While pre-registration is not required, physical distancing rules must be followed.

Participants in any of these programs or amenities should not have signs or symptoms of COVID-19. They must not have returned from outside Canada in the previous 14 days, or been in contact with someone who has a presumptive or confirmed case of the virus.

Further updates to the city’s restoration plan will be shared via its website and social media channels as they are confirmed.
