Swimming Pools in Memphis and the Mid-South

Public Pools


When the weather turns warm (as it always does in Memphis!) there is nothing like a refreshing dip in the pool to cool you off. Even if you don't have the luxury of having your very own swimming pool in the back yard, there are plenty of places to swim in Memphis and the Mid-South. From free public pools to membership-only facilities, you are certain to find the perfect place for you and your family to chill out this summer!

Memphis Community Center Pools
These city owned swimming pools are open to the public and are free of charge but you must register for a pool I.D. before using the facilities. These pools will open on June 8, 2013. Usual hours of operation are Tuesday-Saturday, 1:00--6:00 p.m. Before heading to the pool, be sure to call and verify their hours.
