Free things to do in Vancouver this summer if you’ve already used up your budget

If spending money isn’t on your summer plans, you’ll be happy to know that there are tons of super fun free things to do in Vancouver.

Plus, with this warm summer weather that Vancouver is having, there are more and more options for free things to do that are easily available.

Whether you’re looking for something sporty or a laid-back day, there’s probably something to do on this list, however you’re feeling.

Swim in the 30 foot pool at Lynn Canyon

Lynn Canyon is a great place to take some steps and take a dip in some unique swimming holes like the 30 Foot Pool. No admission is required to enter the park, making it a great budget-friendly way to cool off this summer.


Play volleyball on Kitsilano strand beach

Kitsilano Beach is a great place to kick back, relax or practice a sport – all for free. The volleyball nets are first-come, first-served, so if you’re having a hard time playing this sport with some friends, you might want to show up early.


Watch fireworks from English Bay

You can watch the Hondo Celebration of Lights fireworks from English Bay on July 30. It’s free to watch these fireworks if you’re in public and you can settle in a spot where you can catch a glimpse of English Bay.

If your friend has a patio nearby, you might want to visit him.


Wander through Granville Island’s Public Market

The Granville Island Public Market has plenty of different food vendors to explore. It’s all free to walk through and you can even visit one of Seth Rogen’s favorite donut shops while you’re there.


Play Tennis in Stanley Park

If you can find an open court, this is such a fun activity.

There are many free tennis courts in town to bring your own racket and ball and have an intense match with friends. Stanley Park has some beautiful courts right next to Stanley Park Brewing, so it’s a great place to play tennis for free, and if it’s within your budget, grab a beer afterwards.
