Summer Swimming Sites Abound

Group at Durand Eastman Park beach. 

Rochester's summers are glorious and we celebrate them by providing many summer swimming sites, including outdoor pools, indoor pools, and a beach and a lake!  The City also offers many spray parks and the Cool Sweep program across the city for those wanting to beat the heat.

Below are links to summer city swimming site pages. See for full listing of the City's many swimming facilities and opportunities. Also note that free swim lessons are available at several sites for city residents ages 6-18 during the summer (and the rest of the year); low-cost adult swim lessons are also offered.
