Forest Park Pool

Forest Park Pool, the oldest Fort Worth aquatics facility, was the last of the city's seven pools to shut down due to budget and maintenance issues in 2010. Thanks to the backing of the Radler Foundation and local engineering firms, Forest Park Pool began making waves again in 2013.

Marine Park Pool

Opened in 2013, Marine Park Pool is the newest City pool. It is located in Marine Park on the northside of Downtown. Marine Park was also home to the original Marine Park Pool, one of Fort Worth's most popular aquatics centers from years past.

Sycamore Spray Ground

Located at Sycamore Park, the Sycamore Spray Ground offers young children a way to cool off on hot summer days. Several spray features including water cannons, bubblers, and a giant water bucket can provide a relief from the harsh Texas heat.
