Fort Wayne splash pads, pools set to open

FORT WAYNE, Ind. — The City’s free splash pads will be turned on Saturday, May 27 at 9 am.

Children enjoy the splash pad at Buckner Park.

Northside Pool will be open May 27 – May 29 and will reopen on a daily basis starting June 3. McMillen Pool will open for the season on June 3.

Currently, there is no opening date for Memorial Park Pool, due to a shortage of lifeguards. Once all necessary positions are filled, we will open Memorial Pool. Those interested in a lifeguard position may apply online at www.cityoffortwayne.org.

For additional pool information, including hours of operation, Adult Swim times, fees, Learn-to-Swim classes and pool rental, visit www.fortwayneparks.org/FamilyAquaticCenters.

To celebrate the 35th anniversary of Northside Pool, the public is invited to swim for just 35 cents per person on Monday, June 5, 12:30 – 5 pm and 7 – 9 pm.
