The summer heat wave is here. Cool off at one of our city’s outdoor pools for free during open play swim sessions.
All of Portland Parks and Recreation’s outdoor pools are offering free open play swim sessions this summer.
No registration is required to swim. Admission is available on a first come, first served basis and subject to daily staffing.
Looking for more ways to cool off this summer? See my full list of pools, splash pads and interactive fountains at Portland parks.
