|Welcome to The Playground, a place for Vancouver families. I’m always on the lookout for fun stuff to do, so if there’s something happening that you think I should know about, don’t hesitate to contact me.|
The kind folks at the Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa invited us to spend a night at their hotel and enjoy the hot springs, go on a nature walk and explore Harrison on a quadricycle. Just a 90 minute drive (when the traffic is light) from Vancouver, it makes for a great quick family getaway.
Our room was great – modern, comfortable, cleans and it had a small fridge which is a must for me when traveling with a small child. And the view was beautiful (see above)! Our first order of business was to don our white resort walls and head to the pools. That’s right – pools…as in more than one. There are 4 pools at the resort – an adult only pool, a larger pool with surround benches and a water feature, a lap pool that is the coldest of the bunch and in indoor pool and hot tub that is open until 1am.
We spent most of our time in the larger pool which is surrounded by lots of trees and rocks which made it quite the oasis. With it’s no entry access and benches along the side, 2 year old Sadie was able to explore the pool on her own made quick friends with other kids. She loved racing into the warm pool. If I didn’t have to rush off to a spa appointment (heaven!) I would have stayed in that pool for hours. Pool time for dad and Sadie, facial for mum – win win!
