Island Park Pool


Island Park Pool

616 1st Avenue South, Fargo, ND

This impressive trio of outdoor swimming pools looks like a mirage on a sizzling summer day. The 50-meter eight-lane pool gives serious swimmers a workout and emerging swimmers a place to play and practice. It ranges from 3.5 feet to 5-feet deep. A bigger-than-usual wading pool keeps little ones happy. The most action will likely be in the diving pool where kids and adults are constantly leaping, flipping and gracefully diving off two high-dives (3 meters) and two low-dive (one meter) boards. It’s also fun to watch the divers from the hillside overlooking the pool. Kids who aren’t interested in diving and prefer slides can check out West Fargo’s Veterans Memorial Pool for two large slides, fountains and zero-depth entry ($3/person admission).

Pools are open early June through mid-August. Check for exact dates.

$2.25 for anyone under 18; $3.30 for adults; $5.95 per family during family swim sessions Wednesday and Sunday
