Water Parks & Pools

Milwaukee County Water Parks & Swimming Pools

Opening in Summer 2022

  • 2 Waterparks: David F. Schulz Aquatic Center & Hoyt Park Pool (operated by Friends of Hoyt Park & Pool)

  • 3 Deep-Well Pools: McCarty, Sheridan & Wilson Park

  • More Than a Dozen Splash Pads & Waders throughout the County

All other pools will remain closed this summer, due to the lifeguard shortage.

Pool Safety Reminders

  • Swim suits (typically nylon or lycra) must be worn by all swimmers for hygiene and safety of all pool visitors. Street wear, especially underwear, isn't suitable for pool use because it can contaminate the pool with dirt and bacteria
  • Swim diapers must be worn by all non-toilet-trained users
  • Children must be supervised while in the water. Adults must remain within arm’s length of infants and toddlers and keep a watchful eye on children at all times
  • Showers are required before entering the water
  • Food, drink, gum or tobacco may NOT be brought into the pool
  • Groups of 20 or more must call in advance
