Dive In To Summer As Temple Opens Pools For The Season

Temple Parks and Leisure Services is ready to help you have fun and stay cool this summer as the City’s splash pads and pool facilities open this month. Temple features three outdoor swimming pools, three splash pads, one indoor pool and Lions Junction Family Water Park.

“Temple offers many different low cost or free ways to beat the heat and stay cool this summer. We hope your summer plans include a trip to one of the splash pads or pools this year,” said Recreation Superintendent Chuck Ramm.

Currently, three splash pads are now open daily from 8am-8pm. Splash pads are located at Ferguson Park (1203 E. Adams), Miller Park (1919 N. 1st Street), and West Temple Park (121 S. Montpark Road). Splash pads are free and open to the public.

Lions Junction Family Water Park (5000 S. 5th St.) will open on weekends starting Saturday, May 24th and full time beginning Saturday, June 7th. The Water Park will also be open on Monday, May 26th for the Memorial Day holiday from 11am – 7pm.

The Summit Recreation Center Pool (620 Fryer’s Creek Circle) will also be open weekends starting Saturday, May 24 and daily beginning Saturday, June 7. The Summit Pool is open to members of the Summit Recreation Center. Membership information can be obtained by visiting the center or by calling 254.298.5348.

Walker Pool (2615 N. 3rd St.) and Clark Pool (1806 Curtis B. Elliott Dr.) will open on Memorial Day, Monday, May 26th from 12 – 5pm. The pools will be open weekends only until Saturday, June 7th, when daily operation resumes.

Sammons Park Indoor Pool (2220 West Ave. D) is an indoor, heated pool open year-round.

“All of our aquatic facilities are very popular summer destinations, but what people may not know is that they can rent the swimming pools, the water park and pavilions near the splash pads for private parties and group functions like birthdays, family reunions, or company events,” said Ramm. “I would encourage anyone interested in renting these facilities to do so soon as the available dates fill up fast.”

For more information on visiting or renting a pool facility for your party or event, please call 254.298.5690 or visit www.templeparks.com.
