Four-Legged Friends Enjoy Annual Doggy Dip at H-E-B Pool (September 19, 2017)



Make us your party zone! 

Book your pool parties with us. We offer you many exciting options to choose from for your special event.



The Natatorium is our newly renovated indoor OLYMPIC-STYLE POOL facility designed to host competitive swim meets. The pool has many lanes for lap swimming which also makes it ideal for conditioning. It now has a large, tiled-pool floor with lane stripes to guide the path for swimmers. Enjoy the warm activity pool or jump into the deep end from one of the five diving boards! We invite you to come for a tour and book a fun party for your guests to have an extraordinary experience.

Collier Pool is our newly reconstructed outdoor pool which features the BIG BUCKET DUNK! Enjoy the beach-inspired entry, experience the splash of the big bucket, fun water features, picnic tables and relax under the gulf streams, or jump into the deep end! The pool also includes six lanes and is heated for year-round lap swimming.



(Summer Season is mid-June to early August)

Choose from any of our available list of summer pools: Natatorium, Collier, Greenwood, H-E-B, Oso, T.C. Ayers, and West Guth.

We have some exciting pools with features for you to consider. You can't miss our BIG TRIPLE WATER SLIDE at Greenwood Pool—it has three rides in one slick water slide. Ride the Swirl…take the Deep Drop…or go for the Three Loop! Our state-of-the-art SPLASH PAD at H-E-B Pool is a wonderful choice for younger and inexperienced swimmers with its zero-depth entry pool, fun water features, cabanas and a party-concession area. The fun water features encourage children to splash in the water and is perfect for swimming and play!



Through our swim lessons we teach swimmers of all ages and skill levels to master swimming while also teaching the importance of water safety. Please view ‘Swim Lesson Levels’ for more details on the structure of our learn-to-swim program. Group swimming lessons are designed for children 3-12 years of age. Teen/Adult, as well as Parent & Toddler classes, are also available. Level placement is based on the student’s swimming ability, age, and date registered. Swimmers ‘graduate’ to more advanced levels once they are competent in all the skills covered in the previous level.
