Cool off in KC’s outdoor pools and spray parks!

Posted June 06, 2011 8:14am by Admin

It’s here.  The summer heat has set in and it doesn’t seem like that long ago I was complaining about having jackets in May…now, it’s full on summer.  What gives?!?  Summer in Kansas City, to be sure.

Here is our list of outdoor swimming pools in and around KC.  We’ve also included spray parks.  You can typically find everything you need to know (hours of operation, fees, location, etc.) by calling the number provided or going to the city’s aquatic site (click on each city for their sites).  Many locations offer lessons in the mornings prior to opening to the public.

Have fun!  Try and keep cool this week.  Summer is here and in a big way– If you can’t get to a pool, try a big red bucket with a hose!!!

It’s POOL TIME!!!

Readers–here it is–a listing of major KC-metro area pools, open to the public, and their locations! Pools should have all opened for the season over the weekend. (That’s no guarantee that the water is warm!!!) They are listed by city to make it as easy as possible to navigate. Many of the pools offer swimming lessons, as well. I’ve included the link to each city’s aquatics website…simply click on the city and you’ll see the corresponding aquatics page. These city-specific pages offer detailed information on lessons, pool hours and daily/season fees, if applicable. PLEASE SEND ME AN EMAIL IF I’VE FORGOTTEN YOUR FAVORITE POOL! I can easily add it to the list. Happy Swimming! And above all, be safe!!

Also, if you’re looking for a break from the sun, don’t forget about the newly-opened CoCoKey Resort, located in the Sheraton Kansas City Sports Complex! Day passes can be purchased if you aren’t planning on spending the night at the hotel. The same holds true for Great Wolf Lodge in KCK. When it’s just too hot outside, bring the waterpark IN!
