INDIANAPOLIS, IND. — Dive into summer fun with a free community pool day on Thursday, June 6th!

The Indiana Sports Corp, Indy Parks, and the YMCA of Greater Indianapolis are opening the doors to over 20 pools across Indianapolis – completely free of charge.

Beat the heat and enjoy a refreshing afternoon at the pool from 11 am to 2 pm and 3 pm to 6 pm on June 6th. It's the perfect opportunity for families, friends, and neighbors to cool off and celebrate the upcoming 2024 U.S.A Swimming Trials which are being held in Indianapolis.

Participating pools will be hosting water safety demonstrations and giveaways throughout the day. There's even a fun challenge – all participating swimmers will be working together to virtually swim 4,000 miles, symbolically connecting Indianapolis to Paris!

Here's what you need to know:

  • No registration is required, just show up and enjoy the pool!
  • All pools will enforce capacity limits to ensure everyone's safety and enjoyment.
  • Children 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult 18 years or older and be within arm's reach at all times.
