The City of Richardson has five outdoor pools for public swimming. In addition to the main pools, Glenville Pool has a splash playground and Terrace Pool and Canyon Creek Pool have baby pools. Scheduled Learn-to-Swim and Lifesaving classes are taught by Red Cross certified instructors. A fee is charged based on the individual class. 

Our newest addition is the Heights Family Aquatic Center which was opened in the Summer of 2013.  Here you  can enjoy a leisure pool with a current channel, vortex, and splash features in our beach front entry.  There is something here for the entire family including its tot pool, slides, and a lap pool with a basketball hoop. 

Aquatics activity & class schedules may be viewed in the Summer Swimming and Camps issue of the Recreation Today online.

Weather Policy
The City of Richardson uses the Weather Bug app that includes a Spark Lightning feature which identifies where the nearest strike of lightning has occurred. If there is lighting within a ten mile radius of the aquatic center it will close for at least a half hour. The facility will remain closed for a half hour succeeding the last lightning strike within a ten mile radius.

For the safety of our patrons all patrons must leave the pool gate area and remain outside the facility until it is deemed safe to reopen. Patrons are encouraged to call the facility to check on the current status.
