Pools & Aquatics
The Cincinnati Recreation Commission has a long history of offering area residents a variety of clean safe aquatics facilities where they can cool off during those hot summer days, and in some cases, all year round!
These swimming pools and spraygrounds also provide a place to learn swimming skills, get exercise and are the place many young people experience their first employment opportunities "working the water" for CRC!

From shallow water pools to modern water parks, the Cincinnati Recreation Commission has a safe and convenient way for Cincinnatians to play, learn to swim and cool off during the summer months.
