Culture & recreation

Find a swimming pool

NOTE: All Parks & Rec pools are closed for the 2020 season. Please use the Parks & Rec Finder to locate a sprinkler or sprayground near you (open July 6).

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. Use Parks & Rec’s Finder tool for information on days and times of open swim, family swim, adult swim, and swimming lessons.

By following our pool rules and proper attire guidelines, you’ll help us keep our pools clean and safe.

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.
