I remember when I first heard about Wichita’s FREE swimming days! They have them for each of the city’s pools throughout the summer. Can you believe that?

Although City of Wichita Pools are undergoing some changes and upgrades for the next couple of years, seven Wichita city swimming pools will still have free swimming days during the summer of 2019!

The Wichita pools open this year on May 27, 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.
