The future of city pools
In a nutshell, and according to the city’s Aquatics Supervisor, 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 water playgrounds won’t open until 2019, but while you’re waiting you can visit one of these existing interactive fountains and splash parks in Wichita.
