Cincinnati Recreation Commission 2023 Summer Pool Openings

Summer recreational facilities, such as swimming pools, play a vital role in the development of youth, particularly for those from low-income backgrounds. Swimming pools provide an opportunity for children to engage in physical activity, socialize with peers, and learn important life skills such as teamwork and sportsmanship. For many low-income families, these facilities may be the only source of affordable and safe recreational activities for their children during the summer months.

The Cincinnati Recreation Commission has announced the summer opening of pools throughout Hamilton County.
