Pools You Can Visit

City of Memphis Pools
All swimmers attending City of Memphis swimming pools must have a valid pool card prior to swimming and admission is free. Pool cards can be obtained year round, please click here for locations.  The moms recommend the following locations:

Gaisman Park
4223 Macon
Willow Park
4971 Willow Road
763-2917
“I’ve been to the Willow Pool for the past two years. There is hardly anyone there. The pool is clean. The dressing room is decent. They have weird hours so call before you go. They used to have an hour or 30 min break where they close the pool. The Hickory Hill community center indoor pool is really nice too. It’s not the most ideal location but it’s open year round. It’s right next to the police station so I feel safe there. I recommend bringing your own chair.”
