Municipal Pools

The Cedar Rapids Parks & Recreation Department operates two outdoor aquatic centers, three outdoor pools and one indoor pool. The five outdoor aquatic centers and pools operate seasonally, generally from the last day of school until the first day of school in the fall. Pre-season (Memorial Day) and post-season (Labor Day) swimming is available at some of the pools. Year-round swimming is available at the indoor pool. Schedules are available on the pool pages.
