Although City of Wichita Pools will be undergoing some changes and upgrades in the next couple of years, eight Wichita city swimming pools will still be in operation during the summer of 2018. And they will still have free swimming days!
The Wichita pools open this year on May 28, Memorial Day.
Did you also know you can rent out a city pool for birthday parties and family get-togethers? It’s true! Some pools you can rent after regular hours, and at two of the pools you can have access during public swim times and reserve a private party area.

Wichita swimming pool prices
City pools are so inexpensive! Regular Wichita swimming pool prices are only $3 for adults, $2 for children 17 and under, and $8 for a family of up to six people (at least one must be an adult).
The future of city pools
In a nutshell, and according to the city’s Aquatics Supervisor Brian Hill, the Aquatics Master Plan that was approved by the city council includes renovating and updating Harvest, Aley, and College Hill swimming pools. The other city pools, with the exception of Minisa, will become water playgrounds. The first new water playground won’t open until 2019, but while you’re waiting you can visit one of these existing Wichita Splash Parks.
