Free Swim and Recreation this Summer

The City of Tucson invites kids ages 17 and under to beat the heat at City pools and recreation centers for free this summer. Throughout June and July, youth will pay no admission fee at 13 City of Tucson Parks and Recreation centers during open recreation hours

Due to other center programming, ages 12-17 are permitted after 2 p.m. and ages 7 and up are permitted after 6 p.m. A list of participating recreation centers can be found at

Youth also can swim for free at 19 pools during recreational swim and family swim hours. A fee will still be charged at the Edith Ball Adaptive Recreation Center pool. Fees are $2 for adults (18 and over) and $1 for youth (17 and under). A map and hours of City pools can be found at

The fun also continues into the evening. Join us for a pool party hosted at six pools in June and July from 5-7 p.m. There will be lots of games, music, and snacks located outside the pool entrance, with a pool inflatable (if pool size permits) and water games in the pool.
