Category: Aquatics

Upper Arlington Parks & Recreation does not have an indoor pool. The Department does use the High School natatorium. The indoor pool is only available for swim meets and Sunday Swim lessons. Sunday Swim lessons are for children of 4 years of age and older.

Upper Arlington city pools offer both residential and non-residential season passes that are usable for the summer season at all three pool facilities. Prices are less expensive for residents. The cost of passes depends on the family size and prices are available on the Places section of the website; daily admission fees are also available.

Refer to the pool the lessons are taking place – they are the ones in possession of the rosters once lessons have started. The phone numbers for all Upper Arlington pools can be found on each Pool page and at the top of this page. Once lessons are started, we do not give refunds or credits.

Categories: Aquatics, Recreation

In the event of rain, the pools will remain open during their regular operating hours. If lightning is spotted, the pool is evacuated for a 30 minute period for safety – this does not close the pool.

Enrollment into the next session of swim lessons is dependent upon the availability of open positions. Your child may sign up for lessons if an opening is available.
