      There's no need for local swimmers to stay out of the sun this weekend.

      That's because the Vancouver park board opened three outdoor pools yesterday.

      The largest is at Kitsilano Beach Park.

      It's the only outdoor saltwater pool in the city.

      The other two that opened are at Second Beach in Stanley Park and at New Brighton Park in the Sunrise neighbourhood.

      The Maple Grove outdoor pool, which is operated by the Kerrisdale Community Centre, is scheduled to open on June 15.
