Swimming

Akron’s municipal swimming pool opened July 6, 1958 in the Akron City Park. In 1995, the swimming pool deck area was renovated, a new baby pool and bathhouse were constructed and a sand volleyball court was added to the swimming pool complex. Future plans call for the construction of a new aquatic center at the original pool site.
