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.
