This year, Philadelphia Parks & Recreation’s outdoor pools will open on a rolling basis from June 17 until June 28. 

Here’s what you need to know:

  1. Our pool season will kick off at Bridesburg Pool on Monday, June 17.
  2. Pool opening dates are available in our 2019 blog post. Use our Finder app to find a pool near you.
  3. Free swim lessons are available at our outdoor pools this summer. Search for lessons near you.
  4. Parks & Rec is still hiring lifeguards to keep our pools safe this summer. To become a lifeguard, you must attend a screening and lifeguarding course. Find out how to get started.
  5. Suit Up for Summer is a citywide campaign to collect and distribute new swimwear and swim accessories for Philly’s youth. Contribute to our swimwear drive.

Finally, our spraygrounds offer even more opportunities to stay cool this summer!
