“I am grateful for our team and all of their efforts to hire and train new and returning staff as well as their commitment to get our pools ready for a safe and fun summer,” said Phyllis Boyd, director of Indy Parks. “We will continue to work towards getting the remaining pools up and running this summer for the community to enjoy.”
The Indy Parks pools opening Memorial Day weekend are:
- Broad Ripple Park

The Gustafson Park pool will open June 3.
Starting June 3, the pools will be open Tuesday through Sunday with varying hours.
The indoor pools at Indy Island Aquatic Center and Thatcher Park will operate during normal business hours the week of Memorial Day, but will switch to summer hours starting June 3.
Entrance fees range from $2 to $5 depending on age and location of the pool. Indy Parks Fun Cards can also be purchased for $40 per person for ages 3 and up.
