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 Richardson Swim School classes are taught by certified instructors. A fee is charged based on the individual class.
Our newest addition is the Heights Family Aquatic Center, which 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 and class schedules may be viewed in the Swimming and Camps issue of the Recreation Today. Registration for classes begins March 1st each year.

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.
