Looking for a swimming pool to cool off in this summer? So are we! Central Indiana is home to many public and private pools. Here are some great pools that are open to the public. All of them are outdoors unless otherwise noted.

Indy Parks will open about half of their 20 pools on May 25th and all of them will be open June 8th.

Carmel Clay Parks has a beautiful outdoor water park at the Monon Center. We enjoy visiting at least once every summer. Older kids really like their surfing simulator, the Flowrider.

The Franklin Family Aquatic Center is open beginning May 19th. This pool is in it’s third year of operation and families love it!

The splash pad at City Center Park in Greenwood. Splash pads or spray parks offer a free way for kids to cool off. My children enjoy these on hot summer afternoons, especially when they hadn’t quite learned to swim yet and there are more than 20 of them in the Indy area. Greenwood is also home to Freedom Springs waterpark.

Splash Island Family Waterpark in Plainfield will open May 24th. Also, the zero depth pool area is heated! Our family loves to visit during their weekly evening time when the sun is going down and my husband is done with work for the day.

Gill Family Aquatic Center will open for the season on May 24th in Danville.

The Zionsville Aquatic Center (Indoor) at Zionsville Community High School is open to the public daily.

Need to escape the sun? There are a lot of indoor pools in Indy!
