Located half way between English Bay and Third Beach along the west coast of Stanley Park is Second Beach. It's here just west of Stanley Park's Lost Lagoon where you'll find a small sandy beach, a large children's playground, picnic and BBQ facilities, as well as a snack shop, washrooms and changeroom facilities.

Second Beach also has a large public swimming pool called the Second Beach Pool. You have to pay a small admission fee to use this pool. It's a cool pool too, as it's located right next to the beach. Only the seawall separates the swimming pool from the ocean.

This is probably the most child-friendly, family-friendly beach and recreational park in Stanley Park. Watch out for the raccoons and the skunks, as they hang around here during the evening!

Directions: Located on the west side of Stanley Park between English Bay and Third Beach.
