Indoor pools

Philadelphia Parks & Recreation helps keep indoor City pools open year-round. These pools are free and open to the public, and are staffed by Water Safety Instructors. 

Outdoor pools

During the summer, over 70 outdoor City pools are open for recreation. Please check with your neighborhood pool for days and times of open swim, family swim, adult swim, and swimming lessons.

Each year, some pools are designated as Swim Philly pop-up pools, with free classes, events, and extended hours. See the Swim Philly page for updates as summer approaches.
