Upper Arlington city pools offer both residential and non-residential season passes that are usable for the summer season at all three pool facilities. Prices are less expensive for residents. The cost of passes depends on the family size and prices are available any of our pools or tennis pages under the City Facilities section of the website; daily admission fees are also available.

In the event of rain, the pools will remain open during their regular operating hours. If lightning is spotted, the pool is evacuated for a 30 minute period for safety – this does not close the pool.

Enrollment into the next session of swim lessons is dependent upon the availability of open positions. Your child may sign up for lessons if an opening is available.
