Important Pool Information

Supervision
A responsible caregiver ages 16 or older must accompany all children ages 9 or younger. The number of children to parent or supervisor shall not exceed 4:1. Children who cannot swim 20 feet unassisted or are using a flotation device must be within an arm's reach of a caregiver.

Pool Rule Enforcement
Staff reserve the right to ask anyone to leave the pool area or deny admission. Those not following pool facility or park rules, or whose actions are inconsistent with good health or safety practices, may be asked to leave. Please note, security officers are on duty at pool facilities.

See General Pool Rules and Additional Safety Policies & Etiquette for more information.

Lap Swimming
Lap swimming will only be available at McClure pool on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays between noon and 2 p.m. Staff will designate the number of lanes reserved for lap swimming based on the number of those interested, as well as ongoing need and regular pool attendance and/or activities.

Inclement Weather
At the first sign of thunder or lightning, the pool will close. The pool will remain closed for 30 minutes after the last visible sign or sound of the storm. Patrons can gather in the shower rooms or protected areas. Please do not congregate under umbrellas or trees and stay away from metal pipes, railings, wire fences, or other objects that may carry lightning.

Pool Passes
Multi-visit pool passes will be offered at Lacy and McClure pools for admission during the 2023 season. The Lacy pool pass will be $8 for 10 visits, and the McClure pool pass will be $20 for 10 visits. There will be no season-long pool passes offered for 2023 and any unused visits will expire at the end of the season.

Work to Swim
The Work-to-Swim program will be available at Lacy and McClure pools. Simple cleaning duties will be assigned to those interested in participating. Duties must be completed before patron can enter the pool. Work-to-Swim participation will be awarded based on the active pool manager's discretion.

Pool Rentals
Due to staffing shortages this season, pool rentals will only be available on a very limited basis and only during the regular pool schedule. For information about rental availability, costs or other questions please email aquatics@cityoftulsa.org.

Reservation Policy
While reservations are not required for large groups or parties, we do recommend and encourage it. We kindly ask groups of 15 people or more to call ahead to let pool staff know when they'll arrival. This allows staff to be prepared for the influx of swimmers, and helps us better maintain capacity.


Swim Lessons

Tulsa Parks and our local YWCA have partnered in offering free youth swim lessons for ages 4-13 at Lacy Park Pool. Lessons will be offered throughout the season for varying skill levels. To enroll, please download and fill out this registration form, then email it to Megan Vann with YWCA Tulsa at Mvann@ywcatulsa.org.

Please note, at this time Tulsa Parks is not offering swim lessons at any other locations. We are actively searching for trained instructors in order to offer more programming for the greater Tulsa area.


Water Playgrounds & Splash Pads

Water playgrounds and splash pads are one of our most popular play amenities in Tulsa Parks, offering both cool relief and from the summer heat and funs ways to engage kids.

Water at water playgrounds and splash pads will be on for the summer season from Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend and are accessible between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. unless they in need of repair or under construction. We will update this webpage and announce closures as quickly as possible on our social media accounts, including our Tulsa Parks Facebook page.

What is the difference between a water playground and a splash pad? Water playgrounds have fun, interactive water features like tumbling water buckets and water cannons. Splash pads are similar to water playgrounds as a great way to cool off and play but do not have the interactive water features or “playground” elements. Most splash pads are also located in neighborhood parks with no restroom facilities or parking lots. Please plan accordingly and be considerate of nearby neighbors.

Please see below for a list of park locations featuring water playgrounds and splash pads.
