Swimming Pool & Splash Pad

The Arab City Swimming Pool is a 25-meter pool with 8 lanes, and is open to the public during the summer months. The Splash Pad, just opened in the summer of 2019, is our newest park amenity, and just steps from the pool, it’s 3,000 square feet of splash-tastic fun. The splash pad offers plenty of seating options and shade awnings for the hot Alabama heat, and kids and adults alike enjoy all that it has to offer.

* The Splash Pad typically stays open through September, although that is dependent upon the amount of public use.
