Aquatics

Welcome to Baltimore City Recreation and Parks’ outstanding aquatics program. Each swim facility offers the public a chance to get active and escape the summer heat at the City’s six large Park pools, 12 neighborhood pools, three indoor pools (limited Summer availability), and two splash pads. 

We offer swim lessons, early bird swim, beginner kayaking clinics, advanced kayak roll clinics,  water aerobics, Camp Variety for kids and adults with disabilities.  We also offer training in CPR, first aid, lifeguard training, pool operations, and Water Safety Instructor.  Special events like movie night at Druid Hill Pool and after-hours swimming have been a big hit during the Summer. Over 329,000 people attended City pools last year.
