It’s finally here — summertime! That means sunshine in Pittsburgh, a little rain, and a lot of humidity. Looking to escape the heat? Pittsburgh Citiparks gives you access to many outdoor swimming pools right in the city. Good news if your home or apartment doesn’t come complete with this amenity. It’s pool time!
Outdoor City Pools
The city of Pittsburgh has a surprising number of outdoor swimming pools. You’ve probably driven right past several and never really noticed them. A few popular pools include one in Schenley Park and one in Highland Park. Citiparks has outdoor pools in the East End, the North Side, the South Hills, and the West End.
Planning Your Fun in the Sun
Citiparks offers pool tags if you want access to the city pools for the entire season. They’re very reasonably priced, especially when you can split it amongst friends and family. For 2019 city residents, it’s $30 for an adult. Tags are also available at $60 for a family of four — or you and three of your favorite swimming buddies.
If you’re only planning to head to the pool for one or two days this summer, you can pay just $5 for one-day access. There’s nothing better than affordable, convenient pool access in July and August.
Pittsburgh pools are open on weekdays from 1 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, pools are open from 1 p.m. to 5:45 p.m.
Grab a towel, some sunscreen, and get to the pool!
