Parkwood Pool

We are excited to announce the re-opening of Parkwood Pool for the 2024 summer season starting Saturday, May 25th, 2024. We have extended our contract with Midwest Pool Management to help us fulfill the requirement of getting the total amount of lifeguards needed to open Parkwood safely and successfully.

We are committed to ensuring our youth have a great experience at Parkwood Pool this summer. We have many amazing programs and partnerships we will be launching this summer season.

The Parkwood pool and area spray parks are a great place for all to cool off and beat the heat! To ensure that all of our visitors have an enjoyable, safe, and healthy aquatic experience, Parks and Recreation requires:

  • All individuals wear appropriate swimsuits or swim trunks.
  • Children must be potty trained to enter the pool.
