The cities of Kitchener and Waterloo have many outdoor pools around the region, but Kiwanis is different. The pool not only has a spacious swimming area, its gently sloped “beach entry” is perfect for children. The pool is basically a large shallow basin. If you can’t make it out to the beach, there’s no better place to cool off on a hot day than Kiwanis Park’s beach-entry swimming pool!
Kiwanis Park is on the banks of our beautiful Grand River. If you’re looking for fun in the sun, it’s a great place to hang out for a day. There is lots to do besides swimming too:
- Nature trails
- Horseshoe pits
- Athletic fields
- Beach Volleyball court
- Leash-free dog area
- Snack bar
- Playground area
- Picnic shelters
More than 50,000 visitors enjoy Kiwanis Park each year. With quick access to the Walter Bean Trail and the Grand River, Kiwanis Park is an ideal place to hike, bike, fish or canoe.
It was first opened in 1968 but has been updated and improved over the Years. The City of Kitchener has been running the park since 2008.
The Park offers summer camps for the kids.
With certified lifeguard staff on duty, the pool at Kiwanis Park is both a safe and fun place to relax with friends and family during the summer months.

365 things to do in Kitchener Waterloo is brought to you by Keith Marshall, Realtor with Prudential Grand Valley Realty. Kiwanis Park is one of Kitchener’s favourite neighbourhoods.
Kiwanis is an international service club organization founded in 1912. Their motto is “Serving the children of the world”. Kiwanis serves children and youth using two approaches. One hopes to improve the quality of life directly through activities promoting health and education. The other encourages leadership and service among youth. Kiwanis sponsors about 7,000 youth service clubs with nearly 320,000 youth members. Kiwanis members help shelter the homeless, feed the hungry, mentor the disadvantaged, and care for the sick. They have built playgrounds and raised funds for pediatric research. Although the Kiwanis Club no longer operates the Park, they still run the snack bar.
